Court, Country, City: British Art 1660 - 1735

As the title suggests, this research project will focus on three distinct but interwoven sites for the production and viewing of the visual arts: the later Stuart and early Hanoverian court, the country seats of the landed aristocracy and the urban spaces occupied by a mix of social classes. This project is based on a partnership between researchers from the History of Art Department at the University of York and Tate, and will result in a range of outcomes including scholarly publications, virtual and gallery displays, and conferences.
