Examining EH Shepard’s artistic journey through the First World War from jocular cartoons in Punch as a civilian, to dark and impactful images of death and destruction on the western front, and how his own artistic style and approach changed and was influenced by the conflict. It shows a range of cartoons, drawings watercolours, annotated maps and guides for the Intelligence Corps, as well as commercial work for the home market. We see a transition towards the simple economy of line and expression which is exemplified by the Winnie-the-Pooh illustrations started shortly after the end of the conflict.
