Linking with the Manet exhibition, the Drawing Room display picks up the theme of political martyrdom in representations of popular local hero Sir William Courtenay's shooting in Bossenden Wood.
There are First World War images designed to stir guilt or sympathy for the sacrifice of soldiers, and caricatures of First World War executions from the British Cartoon Archives.
Artists' books and prints from the Library of the University for the Creative Arts demonstrate how contemporary politics continue to be a vital subject for artists, as they were for Manet.
