The Real and the Romantic: English Art Between Two World Wars

Hay Festival 2022, 
Leading art historian Frances Spalding takes a fresh look at a period of English art that has surged in interest and popularity in recent years. Mining a hugely versatile era, she investigates the nation’s aesthetics and cultural output in the 1920s and 1930s, shaped by the endless interplay between the emphasis on the ‘real’ or authentic and romantic sensibilities.
