Sketches focusing on life in the trenches on display in Leamington

Leamington Editorial 11th Aug, 2018   0

SKETCHES focusing on life in the trenches during the First World War are now on display at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum.

The works by Spanish-born Miguel Mackinlay are being shown alongside the exhibition Are You In This?, which chronicles life in Leamington during the Great War.

His annotated sketches were drawn in the waiting time between the offensives or in the recovery weeks where an attack was not expected. While enduring the monotony of the trenches Miguel made vivid pen and wash drawings.

The sketches can be seen until November.
