Product Description
Imperial War Museums Coloring Book
The arrival of the First World War in 1914 changed people’s lives around the world, affecting everything from work and attitudes to everyday essentials such as food and clothing. The Imperial War Museum (IWM) was set up in 1917 to document the experiences of soldiers and the people at home who worked to support them. The museum began collecting material from battlefields, factories, and homes while obtaining artworks by Britain’s official war artists, some of whom had already been to battle themselves.

Just a few decades later, in 1939, the Second World War began and the museum expanded its mission, ready once more to record the lives of the people involved. Official war artists, commissioned by the government, were asked to draw and paint the war at home and abroad. Meanwhile, vulnerable objects and artworks were moved from the museum to safer locations outside London. Because of this, when the museum was bombed during the Blitz of 1940, many of the exhibits survived. By the end of the Second World War, Britain’s artists had created thousands of artworks, many of which came to the museum.

Today these artworks are an important part of history. They help us understand those difficult, life-changing times and connect us to the lives and stories of people who experienced them.
