A new exhibition at the Tate Britain celebrates the Romantics:
A major new nine-room display presents Romantic art in Britain, its origins, inspirations and legacies. Drawn from Tate’s collection, it showcases major works by Henry Fuseli, JMW Turner, John Constable and Samuel Palmer, as well as newly-acquired works by William Blake. From Turner’s reinvention of landscape to Blake’s visionary histories, the display reveals the imagination and innovations of a generation defined by belief in creative freedom, rather than tradition or style. In addition, two rooms look at the legacy of The Romantics, presenting work by Graham Sutherland and others.
The exhibition runs 9 August 2010 – 31 December 2012.
