Contemporary drawings by Craig Barrett, inspired by the works of Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen; British soldier/poets renowned for their evocative and insightful war poetry reflecting experiences on the Western Front during the First World War (1914-18). Craig created this exhibition, of large scale drawings in charcoal and coloured washes, specifically for the atmospheric surrounds of the Hall of Columns. His shadowy images, looming in the dimness, respond to the stark and melancholy themes of the poems and the universal suffering they represent.
