The Romantic Thread in British Art

Sat 28/01/17 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

An exhibition exploring the reoccurring theme of Romanticism.

This exhibition has been drawn from Southampton's outstanding collection of fine art. It encompasses paintings, prints and drawings from the late eighteenth century to the present day and illustrates successive Romantic movements that have emerged at times of anxiety and troubled world events. These include the high Romantic era of the early nineteenth century, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Pastoral Etchers, Neo-Romantics and environmentally engaged contemporaries.

Artists represented include William Blake, Frank Dicksee, Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, Stanley Spencer and Clare Woods.
