After featuring in the Cardiff Senedd exhibition in late 2017, Annie’s painting ‘Bendith (Grace): The Suffering of Women in a Time of War’ returns to Wivenhoe this January, accompanied by a powerful text underlining its continued relevance today.
Sponsored by Ann Jones, Deputy Presiding Offices of the National Assembly for Wales, the exhibition explored the impact of war on the lives of women across the world, and told the story of women who have striven for peace. It included photography from the world-renowned photo journalist, Lee Karen Stow, as well as a look at the story of women from Wales’ past who responded to the horror of the First World War and beyond.

In the 100 years since the first world war, how have women felt the impact of war, and contributed to the search for peace? This was the question that the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA) Canolfan Materion Rhyngwladol Cymru explored in the exhibition: ‘Women, War and Peace’ which was on display at the Senedd (Welsh National Assembly) in Cardiff in 2017.
