Main article: Art of the United Kingdom The Battle of Trafalgar is an oil painting executed in 1822, by J. M. W. Turner (c.1775–1851). The experience of military, political and economic power from the rise of the British Empire led to a very specific drive in artistic technique, taste and sensibility in the United Kingdom.[94] A painting of a red haired woman, sitting in a boat, surrounded by trees The Lady of Shalott 1888 by John William Waterhouse in the Pre-Raphaelite style From the creation of the United Kingdom, the English school of painting is mainly notable for portraits and landscapes, and indeed portraits in landscapes. Among the artists of this period are Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723–1792), George Stubbs (1724–1806), and Thomas Gainsborough (1727–1788). William Hogarth painted far more down-to-earth portraits and satires, and was the first great English printmaker. The late 18th century and the early 19th century was perhaps the most radical period in British art, producing William Blake ( ...

Ignatius Sancho was an African composer and author who grew up as a house slave in England. We do not know how Sancho left domestic servitude but according to historians by the time he was an adult he was an emancipated employee of the Duke and Duchess of Montagu. There, working as a butler, he flourished, reading voraciously, writing prose, poetry, and music. Sancho married Anne Osborne, a West Indian woman of African descent, in 1758. They had six children. The Duke and Duchess of Montagu provided Sancho money which enabled him to leave domestic service and buy a grocery shop in Westminster in 1773. By the early 1770s Sancho had transformed himself from a house servant to a man of refinement and accomplishment, penning letters to friends and sympathizers around the country. In 1768 the British painter, Thomas Gainsborough, painted his portrait. Sancho sold sugar, tea, and tobacco among other staples from his store. Many customers came to his store for his advice and company as well. One was Charles ...

Thomas Gainsborough's painting Duchess of Devonshire is auctioned in London, England, nearly 100 years after it disappeared into obscurity. The portrait of Georgiana Spencer, an ancestor of Princess Diana, sold for 10,000 guineas, the highest price ever paid for a work of art up until this time. Public interest in Gainsborough's masterpiece peaked a few weeks later when it was stolen from the Thomas Agnew & Sons art gallery. Adam Worth, whom Scotland Yard later called the "Napoleon of Crime," and upon whom Sir Arthur Conan Doyle eventually based Sherlock Holmes' arch nemesis Dr. Moriarty, stole the artwork in order to come up with the bail to release his brother from jail. However, his brother was freed without his help, so Worth decided to keep the painting, even in the face of serious consequences. Adam Worth was perhaps the 19th century's most masterful criminal. Born in Germany but raised in the United States, Worth joined the Union Army in the Civil War. After erroneously being reported killed in the ...

Well, it's been another wondeful day with all of you. I wish you sweet slumbers and a beautiful day tomorrow! And I leave you with this quote, and a chuckle. I can relate to this sometimes. Can you? : ) "Maintain all your light, but spare the poor abused colours, till the eye rests and recovers.” Thomas Gainsborough in a letter to David Garrick in 1772
Good Sunday Morning! For those that didnt guess, our featutured artist is Thomas Gainsborough. Thomas Gainsborough FRSA (christened 14 May 1727 – 2 August 1788) was an English portrait and landscape painter. He was the youngest son of John Gainsborough, a weaver in Suffolk, and, in 1740, left home to study art in London with Hubert Gravelot, Francis Hayman, and William Hogarth. In 1746, he married Margaret Burr, and they became parents of two daughters. He moved to Bath in 1759 where fashionable society patronized him, and he began exhibiting in London. In 1769, he became a founding member of the Royal Academy, but his relationship with the organization was thorny and he sometimes withdrew his work from exhibition. Gainsborough moved to London in 1774, and painted portraits of the king and queen, but the king was obliged to name as royal painter Gainsborough's rival Joshua Reynolds. In his last years, Gainsborough painted relatively simple landscapes and is credited (with Richard Wilson) as the origina ...

An Economy of Grace at Sean Kelly Sean Kelly announces An Economy of Grace, Kehinde Wiley’s debut exhibition at the gallery. The exhibition represents a significant departure from Wiley’s previous subject matter by depicting African-American women, his first-ever series dedicated to female subjects. The models for the paintings were cast on the streets of New York City. Their poses are based on historical portraits of society women by Jacques-Louis David, Thomas Gainsborough and John Singer Sargent, among others. Instead of representing the models in their own clothes, as is the case with his portraits of men, Wiley has collaborated with Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of the famed French couture house Givenchy, to design long dresses for the women. As creative collaborators, Wiley and Tisci spent numerous hours together walking through the galleries of the Louvre and discussing both the aesthetic and conceptual context for the project, specifically society’s ideals of feminine beauty and the freq ...
Ipswich is one of England's oldest towns,[6][7] and took shape in Anglo-Saxon times (in the 7th–8th centuries) around Ipswich dock. As the coastal states of north-western Europe emerged from the collapse of the Roman Empire.The 7th century town, called 'Gippeswick' was centred near the quay. Towards 700 AD, Frisian potters from the Netherlands area settled in Ipswich and set up the first large-scale potteries in England since Roman times.,,,Parts of the ancient road plan still survive in its modern streets. After the invasion of 869 Ipswich fell under Viking rule. The earth ramparts circling the town centre were probably raised by Vikings in Ipswich around 900 to prevent its recapture by the English...In the time of Queen Mary the Ipswich Martyrs were burnt at the stake on the Cornhill for their Protestant beliefs.

A comparison between two portraits-Sarah Siddons,by Thomas Gainsborough,and Mme Moitessier,by Ingres In order to effect a comparison between these two images,we can,firstly,look at similarities between the two portraits,and then examine the differences in approach that characterise these paintings. In terms of similarity-both portraits are half length images,both pictures represent a woman as the subject,and both paintings are of similar size and proportion,and these pictures were painted within a fifty year period of each other.Sarah Siddons was painted in a conservative england in the 1770s/1780's,in the period just before /during the French revolution,and the portrait by Ingres was painted after the end of the Napoleonic era/wars in Europe,during the second restoration in France-a conservative social atmosphere which would have suited Ingres. Both pictures were painted on linen canvas-prepared for oil painting with gesso and rabbit size. In terms of colour range- ,both paintings were done ,utilising , ...
