War Requiem & Aftermath is a new publication dedicated to a major installation by the British artist Maggi Hambling, first exhibited in 2013 and including an extensive body of paintings of battlefields and war victims. Presented last summer at ‘SNAP: Art at the Aldeburgh Festival’ to coincide with the centenary of Benjamin Britten, Hambling’s War Requiem stands as a bold testament to the anguish and absurdity of war. Hambling’s paintings possess a candour and emotiveness that is at odds with much contemporary art, and these qualities re-emerge in a recent cycle of sculptures titled Aftermath. The book features essays by James Cahill on War Requiem and Aftermath and their place within Hambling’s wider oeuvre, drawing upon extensive interviews with the artist. Condition: Fine
