The Hunterian Museum
Royal College of Surgeons, 35-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3PE
The exhibition explores the relationship between war and surgery, past and present. With unprecedented access to military facilities, the AOI member Julia Midgley has created over 150 pieces of reportage artwork representing military surgeons in training and recently wounded soldiers on their road to recovery. Julia’s work will be exhibited alongside all 72 of the College’s striking pastels of wounded servicemen by surgeon-artist Henry Tonks from 1916-1918.
The show marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.
