Historical Context of United Kingdom

Britain has been a crucial centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accrued vast wealth from colonisation and the rise of its Empire, it was also unsheltered from the cultural influences of other countries and continents. In the modern period, Britain had been to a great extent overshadowed by the influence of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But towards the end of the 19th century, Britain became a significant focal point in the development of the avant-garde. This includes the Arts and Crafts Movement, a major movement paving the way for artist-led organisations, groups and organisational co-operative types that would later develop into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Major artistic movements that characterize British modernism include for example Vorticism, involving artists part of the Bloomsbury group. Some noteworthy British artists of the modern and contemporary period 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.
