The Golden Age of English Portraiture and Landscape
in the Collections of the Louvre
The golden age of British painting is commonly considered to be the Georgian era—a period spanning from the 1720s to the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign in the mid-19th century. The collections of paintings, prints, and drawings at the Musée du Louvre provide insight into this exceptional time in British art history. English artists demonstrated their excellence in two genres that were especially appreciated: portraits and landscapes.
