The Warburg produced exhibitions which toured across Britain during the war years. These moral-boosting displays fought against fascism by celebrating a common European cultural tradition. Initiatives like these were supported by the Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts (CEMA), a government-funded project established in 1940 to promote British culture in the face of war. The CEMA later became the Arts Council of Great Britain.
