Student Reviews of IWM North Exhibition

The recent exhibition of Lewis's paintings at Imperial War Museum North attracted a lot of attention in the national press. Excitingly, it also attracted attention from several undergraduate students at the University of Salford. Two review-responses to the exhibition, by Polly Riggs and Noman Mohammad, are now available for download below. Our thanks to Dr Caroline Magennis for sending on these reviews, which impressively attest to the complexity of Lewis's work and to the difficulties involved in presenting it responsibly to different kinds of audience.
