ART AND REVOLUTION/ART AND POLITICS : THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Contemporary artists all over the world are currently engaging with politics.
But there are precedents where artists reflected and defined the cultural language for some of history’s great turning points. This course looks at the art, music, and literature that evolved from several major revolutions and the responses to them.


England experienced the Industrial Revolution before its European counterparts. There was a shift in patronage as middle-class merchants and manufacturers bought art for the home to reflect their rising social status and, as they moved into positions of power, for key civic buildings. As home-based industries (reflected in the paintings of Haynes King, for instance) ceded to the factory, depictions of work in art changed. This session also explores how industrialisation altered the landscape and came to be reflected in the art of Turner, Joseph Wright of Derby, and Lowry as well as the poetry of William Blake.
