Historical Context of United Kingdom

The UK has been an important centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accumulated considerable wealth through colonisation and the rise of its Empire, it was also exposed to the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. In the contemporary period, Britain had been significantly eclipsed by the influence of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But towards the end of the nineteenth century, Britain became a significant focal point 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 develop into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Ground-breaking artistic movements that epitomize British modernism include for example Vorticism, involving 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.
