Historical Context of United Kingdom
Britain has been an important hub for artistic production for centuries. While it accumulated tremendous wealth through colonisation and the ascent of its Empire, it was also exposed to the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. In the modern era, Britain had been largely overshadowed by the status 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 major movement paving the way for artist-led organisations, associations and organisational co-operative types that would later become into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Important artistic movements in British modernism include for example Vorticism, involving artists part of the Bloomsbury group. Some noteworthy 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.
