‘From Realism to Modernism – British Art 1880-1914’ Frank Woodgate Tuesday 01 October 2019

The end of the 19th Century saw a great variety of art in Britain, from the realism of Clausen and Herkomer to the aestheticism of Whistler and the 'Olympians,' Leighton and Alma-Tadema with Sargent dominating portraiture. The influences from France produced the bright impressionism of Philip Wilson Steer and the dark, gritty interiors of Walter Sickert. The formation of the New English Art Club in 1886 reflected British artists disillusionment with the artistic establishment dominated by the Royal Academy.
