Column on the March shows the earlier influence of Futurism on Nevinson's style. The French soldiers are transformed into one long clanking war machine where the fate of the individual is no longer important. Nevinson's first one man show, held in 1916 caused a tremendous stir with its realistic depictions of life and death on the Western Front in World War I. The painting was bought by the leading Leeds arts patron Sir Michael Sadler, and later owned by Laurence Cadbury who served with Nevinson in the Friends Ambulance Unit in 1914.

Presented by Sir Adrian Cadbury in memory of Laurence and Joyce Cadbury.
