Industrialisation, landscape and art at the Linton Antique Society

19th century industrialisation changed the landscape of Britain and Europe for ever and with it, human life. On Thursday 8 November at 8.00pm at Linton Memorial Hall, heritage researcher Tom Ratcliffe looks at The Reconfiguration of The Industrial Landscape. He reveals how artists like Turner, Stanley Spencer and L S Lowry, among others, responded to these changes and how it led a romanticization of, and nostalgia for, a landscape irrevocably changed.
