Following its five-month refurbishment, the Estorick Collection in North London reopens for January 2017 with War in the Sunshine, a new exhibition revealing the little-known role of British forces in Italy during the First World War.

Highlighting this forgotten aspect of Britain’s First World War, this fascinating exhibition includes 24 drawings, paintings by official war artist Sydney Carline, and some 50 images by war photographers W.J. Brunell and Ernest Brooks, all on special loan from the Imperial War Museum. A series of works by London-based contemporary artist Keith Roberts will also be on display, responding to the themes and concerns of the show.

War in the Sunshine: The British in Italy 1917-1918 takes place at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art 13 January – 19 March 2017.
