Haywain with Cruise Missiles (c. 1981).

Original poster featuring Peter Kennard's détournement of John Constable's 'The Hay Wain', incorporating three cruise missiles, and printing the slogan 'No Nuclear Weapons' in bold red lettering. 42x60cm. Originally created for CND and regarded as one of the defining images of the anti-nuclear campaign, Kennard's photomontage was both a response to the stationing of cruise missiles at RAF Greenham Common in Berkshire, and to a Ministry of Defence leaflet that portrayed the missiles in delicate watercolours. Short lower right corner crease, o/w Near Fine.
