Historical Context of United Kingdom

The United Kingdom has been an essential centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accrued tremendous wealth from colonisation and the rise of its Empire, it was also unsheltered from the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. Throughout the contemporary period, Britain had been to a great extent eclipsed by the reputation of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But in the late nineteenth century, Britain became an important hub in the development of the avant-garde. This includes the Arts and Crafts Movement, a cutting-edge movement paving the way for artist-led organisations, associations and organisational co-operative types that would later develop into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Important artistic movements that epitomize British modernism include for instance Vorticism, comprised of artists part of the Bloomsbury group. Some notable British artists of the modern and contemporary era include Stanley Spencer, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Paula Rego - and in more recent years the YBA generation led by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Chris Ofili and others.
