Talk, from 9 Nov 2018


Art Historical London


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


At the turn of the 20th century, New English Art Club artists such as Philip Wilson Steer, John Singer Sargent and William Orpen made fortunes from the names and faces of gilded-age Edwardian plutocrats. Over at the Royal Academy Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema and others painted antique and mystic fantasies, with sumptuous detail and colour to entertain the wealthy. But by 1914, avant garde ideas from the continent had changed art in Britain. In this 5-week lecture series we trace the stories of the early 20th century's greatest innovators in British Art.
