The last romantics
Frederick William George

Works of The Last Romantics

Ever since the watershed marked by the Barbican Exhibition: The Last Romantics (1989) Liss Fine Art have continued to focus on the extraordinary flowering of talent that occurred in Britain from the decline of Pre-Raphaelitism, in the late 19th century, to the rise of "Neo-Romanticism" in the 1940s.
Often working in Tempera this diverse group of artists had in common an interest in the British Narrative tradition. Although artists such as Burne-Jones and Stanley Spencer now loom large in the public's imagination the majority of Last Romantics are less well known - a stable of unsung heroes and heroines who make up a compelling chapter currently absent from most accounts of 20th Century British Art.
