Gallipoli: V-Beach and the fort of Sedd-el-Bahr, seen from the 'River Clyde', 25 April 1915 [Dardanelles campaign]. Wyllie, William Lionel. Circa 1915.
Poignant 'forgotten' works of art revealing the plight of those who fought at sea in the two world wars have come to light in the first ever book dedicated to the subject.
Art and the War at Sea features dozens of unseen, 'lost' or little-known paintings and sketches showing the reality of life onboard naval and merchant ships in wartime.
While countless books have been written about paintings created on Europe's Western Front during conflict, this is the first ever to focus on maritime and naval art from WWI and WWII.
Art and the War at Sea: 1914-1945 is published by Lund Humphries and costs £40.
