The Modern Landscape in British Painting, 1870-1920

This project investigates the impact of modernization and modernity on representations of landscape in Britain from 1870 to 1920. Through landscape paintings British artists responded to suburbanization, industrialization, and war as well as changing attitudes to nature spurred by new scientific paradigms. In turn, critics interpreted landscape paintings as expressions of national and personal identities. Concomitantly, landscape painting became a key point of deliberation between British artistic tradition, exemplified by John Constable and J. M. W. Turner, and modernism, including Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. The NEH stipend would enable me to complete essential archival research at Tate Archives and Slade School of Art.
