By the end of the First World War the Imperial War Museum held the most important collection of contemporary British art in the country. Today, although much of it is in store, the Museum's collection offers a fascinating insight into twentieth century warfare both on the front line and at home. This catalog reveals all the oil paintings from the Museum's various locations around the country - 1,870 works in total. This includes a significant body of work by Connard, Knight, Lavery, the Nashes, Nevinson, Orpen and Weight. The Public Catalogue Foundation is a registered charity based in the National Gallery, London, that has been set up to record the nation's entire collection of oil paintings in public ownership and to make this accessible through a series of affordable catalogs. The catalogs are produced on a county-by-county basis. Catalogs published to date: Cambridgeshire: The Fitzwilliam Museum, Suffolk, East Sussex, Kent, London: The Slade and UCL, West Sussex and West Yorkshire: Leeds, North Yorkshire, Surrey and Norfolk .
