This course of five sessions studies of British painting in the second half of the 20th century. In the last three decades of the 20th century, the UK continued to produce a range of outstanding artists. The legacies of Abstract and Pop Art remain as major influences, with many artists continuing to develop new variations on these references. The Neo-Romantic tradition also continued and produced a substantial body of works. The last two decades saw many artists take a new direction – the artists now referred to as the YBA’s (Young British Artists) - changed the face of British Art and have become internationally renowned. Join Art Historian Paul Chapman to explore this dynamic part of the history of British Art.
