During the Second World War Edward Ardizzone was an Official War Artist between 1940 and1945. Like many others, he was sent to depict the realities and the feel of war. Ardizzone’s war works often capture quiet periods during or between battles. These gunners are prepared for action but seem to be having a calm moment, perhaps waiting in suspense for their next order.
