Visions of Britain

Many artists have, and continue to be, inspired by the varied landscapes, buildings and cityscapes of Great Britain. For some artists their approach is more topographical, with detailed renditions of historic buildings or careful depictions of a rural way of life. Other artists endeavour to capture a particular mood of a landscape from the sublime to the elegiac or just the fleeting moment of a natural atmospheric effect such as a passing raincloud.
