Part of our Tuesday Evening Lecture Series.

The Industrial Revolution meant that vast numbers of people moved from the countryside to cities, which became economic, political and cultural powerhouses. An obvious example is London, which in the 18th century, and for much of the 19th, was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the World. Naturally, artists were drawn to London and other cities to make their reputations. They set out to portray the great and the good, but also the hectic and often chaotic life of the ordinary people. The aim of this lecture is to explore aspects of that rich artistic legacy from the 18th century to the present day.
