Art Prints and Posters
Reflecting the pursuits and tastes of the age this collection of prints features work from Sir Edwin Landseer, Joseph Farquharson and John Atkinson Grimshaw. Works tended to be large in scale as they sought to capture in detail popular scenes such as famous battles, depictions of childhood innocence and animals in the British countryside. Whilst the work itself is intensely detailed, it tends to present a romanticised version of Britain that fits perfectly with the ideal of Victorian respectability. Yet the appeal of these works remain, as their idyllic depictions of country life and grand celebrations of industrial achievement still prove popular - particularly when captured so brilliantly!
