The Academy of 1789 established British art. However, social, cultural and political events of the 19th century challenged the tradition, as evidenced by Blake and the careers of Turner and Constable. Middle class taste promoted popular Victorian anecdotal painting as well as the medievalism of Ruskin, the PRB and William Morris. European modernism had a reciprocal response in Britain from Sickert, Whistler, Byrne Jones and the artists of the Slade and NEAC. In the 20th century this innovation continued with Camden Town, Gwen and Augustus John, Fry, Bell, Bloomsbury and others. There will be a gallery visit each term.
