Green and Pleasant Land? The Challenge of British Landscape Art.
From Constable and Turner to Richard Long and Kabir Hussain, landscape art has pushed boundaries, defied expectations and forced human beings to look long and think hard about the world and their place within it.
In the 18th century, within a generation, a revolution in thinking and technique saw landscape painting located at the very heart of all that was challenging and controversial in British art. This lecture, delivered by popular art historian Justine Hopkins, explores that journey.
Earth talks are programmed to coincide with our summer exhibition Earth: Digging Deep in British Art 1781 - 2021.
Limited places available - booking required.
