Historical Context of United Kingdom

Through colonisation and the consequent rise of its Empire, the United Kingdom reached the status of a giant, although the wealth and economic power did not shelter it from the apparent cultural supremacy of other continents and countries. With the United States on one side and its European neighbours on the other, Britain had been to a somewhat significant degree eclipsed by their respective influence on the art of the modern world. But it is towards the end of the nineteenth century that it truly became an essential and vital agent in the development of the avant-garde, through major and progressive trends such at the Arts and Crafts Movement, which would become fundamental to the further development of bohemian artists movements or other artist-led organisation of the twentieth century.

Vorticism is a significant movement, fundamentally distinctive of British modernism, it involved artists known for their affiliation to the Bloomsbury group. A few critically significant British artists of the modern and contemporary era include Stanley Spencer, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Bridget Riley and Paula Rego among others – as well as the YBA generation led by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn and Chris Ofili, in more recent years.

The 1980s was the era of African famine, the height of the Cold War, and also the end of it, as marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall. significant art movements of the era include Neo Geo, The Pictures Generation and the international trend of Neo-Expressionism which manifested in Germany, the USA and Italy (where it was known as Transavanguardia). The decade was exemplified by artists like Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel. Street art and graffiti started to gain recognition, notable artists of which include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf.
