About this course:

A brief overview of the major highlights and styles that emerged in Britain—art that often gets overshadowed and overlooked in traditional art history survey courses. We begin with the Royal Academy of Arts established by Sir Joshua Reynolds in 1768; and other painters such as George Stubs, Thomas Gainsborough and Joseph Wright of Derby. Continuing on into the 19th century we explore the radical and influential art of the Romantics: William Blake, John Constable and J.M.W. Turner, and the revolution of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and other reactions to the stifling Victorian era. The 20th century sees the rise of Modernism with artists such as the Bloomsbury Group and more expressionist and independent movements following the horrors of World War II.
