Baroque in Britain

From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the death of Queen Anne in 1714, the late Stuart period was a time of change for Britain. This exhibition will explore how art and architecture was used by the crown, the church and the aristocracy to project images of power and status in an age when the power of the monarchy was being questioned.

The exhibition will include the work of the leading painters of the day, including Peter Lely, Godfrey Kneller and James Thornhill, as well as the woodcarving of Grinling Gibbons and the architectural designs of Christopher Wren, Nicholas Hawksmoor and John Vanbrugh.

The exhibition runs from February 5 - April 19, 2020 at the Tate Britain - Millbank, London, SW1P 4RG, United Kingdom.
