Art in Britain: 1900-1950

The first half of the twentieth century was marked by rapid technological and social change, as well as, of course, by two World Wars. This module will review how British artists engaged with such issues. At the same time, art itself was changing rapidly across Europe and America, and we will consider how British artists responded to such developments, whilst often seeking to retain something distinctively British. Themes to be covered will include art of the Edwardian era, Modernism before the First World War; art of the First World War; tradition and modernism in the inter-war years; recording ordinary life and World War II and beyond. The module will also include a gallery visit.
