War Art with Eddie Redmayne
War art captures in images what is beyond description - the horror of battle, its devastating aftermath. Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne takes an intensely emotional journey, meeting war artists and soldiers, visiting artists' studios and museums, and travelling to battlefield locations to discover how artists have shone a powerful light into the abyss of warfare. Redmayne, who studied History of Art at Cambridge University, explores iconic canvasses of the Great War, discovers censored works hidden away from public view, and learns how this art form is as vital now as it ever was.
