The new show ‘The Long Nineteenth Century’ fills all the gallery space and provides a dazzling journey through British Art from 1789 to 1918.  The exhibition is divided into different areas that reflect changes in fashion and society during this period.  These areas include The Experimental Drive in Watercolour, Victorian Landscapes Abroad, Victorian Figures: from Page to Wall, Aestheticism and The First World War among others.

 Just as the subject matter varies so does the media in which they are executed – oils, watercolours, photographs, drawings and of course book illustrations and cartoons, number among them.  Artists whose work is displayed include Gillray, Beardsley, Rackham, and Heath Robinson as well as Varley, Roberts, Allingham and Goodwin.  The exhibition is accompanied by a two volume catalogue which I heartily recommend as I do this show!
