The National Gallery in Wartime DVD
This art DVD and the accompanying book tell the story of the National Gallery's war for the first time. Days before the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939, the National Gallery secretly evacuated it's collection. Although the paintings were in hiding, the Gallery remained a vital part of London life - despite being bombed during the Blitz.
Visitors, unable to see old master paintings, were now drawn to popular lunchtime concerts by by the famous pianist Myra Hess, and enjoyed a series of temporary exhibitions. The National Gallery in Wartime DVD vividly evokes this extraordinary period of National Gallery - and indeed British history.
This wartime DVD contains unique footage of the paintings being moved to their secret locations, a film of Myra Hess giving a wartime concert, interviews with those who experienced these events, as well as previously unseen historical photography.
