Historical Context of United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has been an important centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accrued considerable wealth from colonisation and the ascent of its Empire, it was also unsheltered from the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. In 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 a significant centre in the development of the avant-garde. This includes the Arts and Crafts Movement, a cutting-edge movement setting the tone for artist-led organisations, guilds and organisational co-operative types that would later become 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 related to 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.
