Dr James Taylor, FRSA
Former curator at the National Maritime Museum,
author, lecturer and exhibition organiser

In 1917, on a patrol ship in the dangerous waters around Britain, the artist and illustrator Norman Wilkinson had a brainwave. As a Royal Navy volunteer he had become all too aware of the threat from Germany’s U-boats. Wilkinson decided he could use his artistic skills to protect Allied ships. He realised that it was impossible to paint a ship in camouflage that would hide it from the sights of a submarine commander. Instead, he proposed the extreme opposite. The ‘Art of Confusion’ was his answer. Discover the man behind the Dazzle, his artists and their wide-ranging work.
