The Edwardians: Art, Architecture and Design
- Where:Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre
4 WEEK SHORT COURSE: Discover the art and design of the Edwardian period, an era that combined wild extravagance, severe poverty, and radical changes in politics and society.
Often perceived as a golden age of long summer afternoons, elegant garden parties, and an Empire on which the sun never set, the period was also strongly marked by modernity and the avant-garde. Art Nouveau dominated modern design and architecture, Post-Impressionism led the field in modern art, and Virginia Woolf revolutionised literature and the novel. Explore the work of the main artists, designers, architects and writers - including Charles Rennie Macintosh, John Singer Sargent, Edwin Lutyens, Vanessa Bell, Walter Sickert, and the Bloomsbury Group.
