The 18th century was a pivotal moment for landscape painting in Britain. With no native tradition to speak of, the demand for landscapes among British collectors was almost entirely met by artists from the continent in the early 1700s. By the end of the century, a flourishing British school was established, boasting some of the world’s finest exponents of the genre. This lecture by Peter Moore traces that story.
Includes coffee/tea and biscuits.
