This major retrospective exhibition examines the life and art of one of the twentieth century's most remarkable artists. William Roberts studied at the Slade School and was a member of the Vorticist movement before serving as an Official War Artist in both World Wars. He was drawn to everyday incidents and dramas, and he portrayed them in bold colours with his own unique style. The exhibition, which features loans from national and regional galleries, as well as private collections, includes works from his entire career, some being exhibited in public for the first time.

A catalogue, with an essay by Andrew Heard and a personal memory of the artist by Anne Goodchild, was published to accompany the show. ISBN 0 7017 0167 6
