British Baroque: Power and Illusion

Tate Britain, London

4 February – 19 April 2020

The late Stuart period was a time of momentous change – from the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the death of Queen Anne in 1714, it was an age when the monarchy was being questioned. For the first time, Tate Britain is staging a show on Baroque art in Britain during the era, in a display which includes a selection of works never publicly shown before. The exhibition conveys how art and architecture became an expression of power and influence during the late 17th and early 18th centuries through grand-scale portraiture, trompe l’oeil and impressive mural paintings by leading influential artists of the day, such as Peter Lely, Godfrey Kneller and James Thornhill.
