‘British Art: Hogarth to Turner’ at the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge

This five-day, online course investigates the production and consumption of British art, from the accession of George I in 1714 to the death of George III in 1820. Structured around some of the celebrated figures of the period – such as Hogarth, Reynolds, Gillray, Turner – it will adopt a contextual view, understanding their art in relation to broader social, political and imperial issues. In the 18th century, artists could be travellers, explorers and celebrities, as well as moralists, theorists, propagandists and provocateurs.
