Historical Context of United Kingdom

Britain has been an essential centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accumulated tremendous wealth through colonisation and the ascent of its Empire, it was also unsheltered from the cultural influences of other countries and continents. Throughout the modern era, Britain had been largely overshadowed by the reputation of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But in the late 19th century, Britain became an important centre 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, 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 instance Vorticism, involving artists related to the Bloomsbury group. Some significant 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.
