About this event

From the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign to her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, British art moved to the forefront of the international avant-garde. World-renowned artists such as Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney dominated the early part of the period, while more recently Chris Ofili, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin have used a variety of media which can surprise and shock. British art has gone from strength to strength, making the UK one of the leading centres of western art at the beginning of the 21st century. Join Arts Society Lecturer Frank Woodgate to learn more.
