To mark the centenary of the start of the First World War in 2014, The Great War in Portraits explores the way the War was represented and perceived through portraiture. International in scope, the exhibition includes formal and informal portraits, photographs, film footage and other documentary material depicting a range of people from politicians and military leaders to ordinary soldiers, nurses and objectors.

The exhibition examines the complex ways that the meaning, purpose and nature of the War were recorded and interpreted, and explores the remarkable personal stories of those involved in and effected by the conflict.
