COURAGE IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY:
The Arts of Regency England
Curator, Metropolitan Museum of Art
Saturday, February 8, 2 p.m.
The French Revolution and the rise of Napoleon unnerved the British establishment.
These anxieties were expressed by the adoption of contradictory artistic styles. Some artworks were condemned for being vulgar and heavy handed, and yet a Greek austerity could be found in others, which came to be associated with a novel category of public and monumental projects and even with British heroism.
