There will be the opportunity to meet the artists at an evening preview on Thursday, July 3 from 7pm, which will include atmospheric music and poetry reading.

A book of the images, also titled At the Going Down of the Sun, will be launched at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in November.

Mr Savage said: “Poignant and captivating, abstract and traditional art sit side by side in this fascinating, multi-faceted exploration of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in World War One.”
