The home and international position of Great Britain in the 1950s brought to important changes in English literature. The roots of modern English drama stretch back into the past, and often the process of its development is plain enough to trace. Two trends continued to develop - progressive and reactionary. Most significant representatives of critical realism of the time are Graham Greene (1904), Norman Lewis (1908), Basil Davidson (1914), Desmond Stewart (1924).

The oldest surviving British art includes Stonehenge from around 2600 BC, and tin and gold works of art. The La Tène style of Celtic art reached the British Isles rather late, no more than about 400 BC, and developed a particular "Insular Celtic" style, seen in objects such as the Battersea Shield, and a number of bronze mirror-backs decorated with intricate patterns of curves, spirals and trumpet-shapes. This continued until 1791, despite the founding of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768, which immediately became both the most important exhibiting organization and the most important school in London.

In the early 20th century the art market was largely dealer-led. The balance of power began to shift toward auction houses, most notably Sotheby’s and Christie’s, just before the First World War. Until that time Sotheby’s had largely confined itself to book auctioneering; there was an unwritten agreement that if a literary property came on the market it went to Sotheby’s, while pictures and sculpture went to Christie’s. Sotheby’s changed hands in 1909, and in 1913 this agreement was broken by Montagu Barlow, the new lead partner in the firm.

Recent papers in 20th Century British Art. Papers. In short, from the Royal Academy of Arts to the Rebel Art Centre, it was unclear how art and artists were to respond to the declaration of war and how to confront the conflict in a relevant and meaningful way. The focus of this collection of essays is not about English culture during the war.
Lucian Freud: The Self-portraits Royal Academy of Arts 27th October 2019-26January 2020. One of the most celebrated portraitists of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency. Spanning nearly seven decades, his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter – from his earliest portrait, painted in 1939, to his final one executed 64 years later. Hastings Contemporary will champion modern and contemporary art in an international context through an ambitious expanded programme.
