About

In a series of eight lectures, Duncan Robinson will trace the development of landscape painting in Britain, from topographical draughtsmanship in the early eighteenth century to the nostalgia for the past expressed by neo-romantics two hundred years later. Works by Gainsborough, Constable and Turner will be considered alongside those by many other, less well-known artists who contributed to this particularly rich seam of British art. Master of Magdelene College, Cambridge and Chairman of the Henry Moore Foundation, Duncan Robinson cbe, is a leading authority on British art from the 18th Century to present day and author of the influential study Stanley Spencer, 1997, (published by Phaidon, London), first published 1979.
