The New English: A History of the New English Art Club - SPECIAL OFFER!
In 1886 the New English Art Club was founded as the direct reaction to the conservatism of the Royal Academy of Arts. Based on the principles of Impressionism, the club attracted the most advanced painters of the time, introducing Monet, Derain and others to the English public. By the early twentieth century it was the dominant force in British art.
In his incisive study author Kenneth McConkey discusses for the first time the important position that the NEAC has held within the development of British art. He charts the ebb and flow of a society that to this day celebrates the richness of life in all its manifestations. This colourful book is a milestone in the study of British art.
