Documents the arts, crafts and occupations of the prisoner of war in England, France and America, from 1756 to 1816.
Clive Lloyd (1920-2004) served in the Royal Navy throughout the Second World War. In the 1950s he started to collect marine paintings. He later opened a gallery for the sale of fine art and became a recognised expert on his subjects. He found and bought his first piece of prisoner of war work in a market in London; this chance discovery became the first step on a lengthy journey to learn and acquire more examples, resulting in what was to become a famous collection.
