OPULENCE & ANXIETY: LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS FROM THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS
'Opulence and Anxiety' features the work of over 40 painters, bringing together masterpieces and rarely seen works from the 18th century to the present day. Britain's industrial and commercial progress in the years leading up to 1800 inaugurated an age of opulence - a period of wealth and global power. Yet Britain also entered an era of extreme anxiety with the fall of Empire and the effects of the First and Second World Wars.
Artists include John Constable and J.M.W. Turner; early artists of empire William Hodge; Victorian naturalists Thomas Creswick and Benjamin Williams Leader; Edwardian painters Alfred East and George Clausen; and observers of inter-war Britain Richard Eurich, L.S. Lowry, John Nash and Sir Stanley Spencer. 'Opulence & Anxiety' also includes recent works by Donald Hamilton Fraser, David Hockney, Barbara Rae and Sir Kyffin Williams.
