Beginning with an overview of British landscape painting in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, this day offers a survey of twentieth century artists and their responses to the British landscape.
This special interest day is devoted to English (and Welsh) artists and their response to landscape in the twentieth century. Beginning with an over-view of the tradition of English landscape painting during the 18th and 19th centuries, the day continues with works by painters, sculptors and photographers, exploring both the rural and urban landscape across the 20th century. As we move between several strands and traditions of landscape art we shall see some of the same artists from different perspectives, and meet some very different artworks that we may not initially think of as part of the landscape tradition at all. With lots of old favourites and plenty of variety, this is a chance to explore the art of landscape from a different perspective.
