Taking the core of Museum Sheffield’s record-breaking Restless Times exhibition, Tate Britain presents an in-focus display of art that responds to Britain’s Restless Times – 1914 to 1945.

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.

See the Tate Britain collection display page for further information about this display and visiting Tate Britain.
