Rise of British Landscape Painting c.1750-1850 – Thursday 9th Nov – 10am-12pm
Despite its traditionally low status, landscape painting became hugely popular in Britain, but what different approaches were adopted and how did they convey political or social messages? How did early nineteenth-century landscape painting relate to national identity? And how did landscape artists engage with the industrialisation of Britain?
William Morris and The Arts & Crafts Movement – Thursday 23rd Nov – 10am-12pm
We will look at the development of Morris’s work, consider his main influences, and
explore the significance of his ideas. We will then explore, the arts and crafts
movement as, drawing inspiration from Morris and others, it developed in part as a
reaction to the increasing industrialisation of production.
