This five week course will examine the art produced by British artists in the 1920s and 1930s. This period was a very productive time for many painters, with various styles and ideas coming together to produce a unique variation of modern art. Realism, figurative painting, landscape, Romanticism and Surrealism were all explored and experimented with during this time. Alongside the established names of the period, Nash, Sutherland, Burra, Spencer and Lamb (in keeping with Salisbury Museum's exhibition in 2018) we will also look at other developments such as Grosvenor School and how artists collaborated with industry in the commercial fields of design, illustration and advertising.
