Course Information

The Neo-Romantic Vision in British Art

A non-accredited history of art course

Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_141
Course Description

In 1942 the art critic Raymond Mortimer identified a tendency in British art that he described as ‘neo-romantic’. This course addresses this inclination in figurative art, from its gestation in the 1920s through to its decline in the 1950s. We shall study the circumstances behind the movement and explore the art of leading figures such as Paul Nash and Graham Sutherland, alongside a younger generation of lesser-known figures including Leslie Hurry and Cecil Collins. In doing so, we recognise how they were remarkably aligned with current issues, be it the body and sexuality, nostalgia and anxiety, or nature and extinction.
