Historical Context of United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has been an important hub for artistic production for centuries. While it accumulated tremendous wealth through colonisation and the rise of its Empire, it was also exposed to the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. Throughout the modern period, Britain had been largely overshadowed by the influence 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 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, guilds 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, comprised of artists associated with the Bloomsbury group. Some significant 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.
