Worcester's most famous artistic son, Benjamin Williams Leader RA (1831 – 1923) was celebrated for capturing the charms of British Landscape.
BW Leader became an international success with his paintings of the idyllic English landscape. During World War One, these images took on a new emotional appeal with connotations of a landscape worth fighting for.
The exhibition, which is part of the Worcestershire World War 100 project, includes artworks from the Worcester City collection as well as loans from private and public collections, including The River Llugwy near Bettws-y-Ceod generously lent by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection.
