The devastation of the First World War left the art world decentered and directionless. In her new book, The Real and the Romantic, leading art historian Frances Spalding looks at its recovery in the interwar years, exploring how artists such as Eric Ravilious, Frances Hodgkins, and Paul Nash sought to respond to their times, balancing exciting new ideas with a desire for continuity and a renewed interest in the past.
Join her for a fresh look at this rich period in English art including examples held in the V&A collection.
This talk will be held on Zoom and all ticket holders will receive a link to join the morning of the event.
