Museums Sheffield’s most successful show to date is now on tour to Norwich Castle, Norfolk – a truly unmissable show!

The first half of the 20th Century witnessed some of the most destructive and yet creative decades in Europe’s history. These were momentous, brutal, but inspiring times for artists as an entire generation responded to the electric pace of change.

Restless Times tells the story of what would become a turning point in the history of Modern British Art. From the devastating impact of war, to the celebration of the rural and the embracing of new ideas and technologies, Restless Times will show both the uncertainties and possibilities of the time.

Artists on show include Paul Nash, Eric Ravilious, Barbara Hepworth, Cyril Power, Percy Wyndham Lewis, Christopher Nevinson, Henry Moore, and Evelyn Dunbar. Also included are specially commissioned contemporary works, exploring our own ‘restless times’.

Restless Times is curated by Museums Sheffield as part of the Great British Art Debate. The exhibition will come to Tate Britain after it closes in Norwich.
