This exhibition presents work by a diverse group of artists who see themselves as continuing the great tradition of Romantic British art.

The exhibition weaves together themes of nature, expressive landscape, spirit of place, the human figure, drama and angst. Romantic art has always been broad-brush in its approach and embraces a range of subject and treatment. The show demonstrates that the Romantic sensibility is still a vital and relevant force in today’s dangerous world where anxiety and uncertainty dominate our lives.

Artists taking part include: Peter Archer, Graham Arnold, Mary Anne Aytoun-Ellis, Chris Bucklow, Jeffery Camp, Julian Cooper, Alex Faulkner, Greg Gilbert, Sarah Harding, David Inshaw, Alice Kettle, Christopher Le Brun (President of The Royal Academy), Ffiona Lewis, Fiona McIntyre, Julian Opie, Annie Ovenden, Julian Perry, Alan Rankle, George Rowlett, George Shaw (Turner Prize Nominee) and David Tress.
