Few places on earth can compete with the Great British lanscape in terms of drama, variation and atmosphere. Whether it is the rocky cliffs and lonely stones of the beachy cove, or the sight of a boat harboured precariously on the shore, the coastal regions are packed with beauty and interesting details.
Things are no less remarkable inland. The hills of our country, whether gently rolling or distinctly steep, provide the artists with plenty of inspiration. The symmetry of clouds reflected in lakes will always give a feeling of naturally ordered calm and the resonant blue of the sky with always lift the spirit. In winter, the sunlight glistens off the snow and in these works the viewer can almost feel the frosty bite on their toes.
Let us also not forget the towns and cities of our island, whether ancient, industrial or iconic. So join with us as we take a look through the artwork inspired by the wonders of the Great British Landscape.
