In the 1930s Christabel Pankhurst coined the slogan, “War will cease when men refuse to fight.”
Philip Muirden a “painter of boats”, producer of homespun surrealism and questioner of human behaviour believes that as an artist he should “embrace political issues as well as the production of furnishing pictures of sandy beaches and domesticated wolves.”
In the year 500BC, Pindar the Greek queried’ “What is man? What is he not? Mankind is a dream of a shadow.”
