Read full description


In Hogarth to Turner, discover British paintings of the eighteenth and nineteenth century at the National Gallery.

Richly illustrated, the clean, modern design, concise introductory text and short entries make Hogarth to Turner an accessible, enjoyable book.

This book includes paintings by Hogarth, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Stubbs, as well as stunning landscapes by Constable and Turner.

Innovation is at the heart of the National Gallery's British collection. William Hogarth developed a fascinating new form of satirical narrative painting; George Stubbs turned horse painting into an epic art form; and Joseph Wright captured the drama of science in a way that no one had before. John Constable's canvases stunned observers in Paris, and Joseph Mallord William Turner's unprecedented use of colour divided the British art establishment.

Hogarth to Turner traces some key developments in British eighteenth and nineteenth century painting, focusing in particular on the outstanding portraits and landscapes in the National Gallery's collection. Compare what rival portraitists Thomas Gainsborough and Sir Joshua Reynolds offered their sitters: the choice between shimmering colours and expressive brushwork, or ennobling classical references. Their art techniques and philosophical ideals would be challenged and developed even further by the next generation. The ground-breaking landscapes that John Constable and Joseph Mallord William Turner produced inspired French Impressionists, and are still among the world's favourite paintings today.
