Holly Brodie is a painter who works in oil, taking advantage of its slow-drying properties. She was born and raised in rural Somerset, but studied English at Oxford University (1998-2001) where she was encouraged to explore connections between literature and art. She now lives in suburban west London. Her landscape paintings are heavily influenced by nature, and often incorporate animals or people. The narratives they suggest are open to ongoing interpretation.

Artists who worked in England

In 1976, the American painter R.B Kitaj organised an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London. The show featured a group of artists who were known as the School of London, despite the fact that they had no shared style. The exhibition brought together Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Leon Kossoff.

Their work was a response to the dominance of abstraction and focused on the investigation of the human body in both drawing and painting. While the painters were not necessarily friends, they shared an interest in traditional methods and a desire to create new forms of figurative painting.

Pre-Raphaelites like Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Holman Hunt were another group of artists who strove to depict literary, historical and religious subjects in their paintings. Their works are available to view at the Tate Britain and Leighton House Museum.

During the Industrial Revolution, many workers moved to cities, which helped fuel the growth of the city’s arts scene. During this time, a number of famous painters were born and established in London. Hogarth is perhaps the most notable of these, with his series of paintings ‘A Harlot’ and ‘A Rake’ sealing his reputation as a genius. The National Gallery also houses a number of his paintings. Other famous painters to be found in London include Joseph Turner, John Constable and Edward Van Dyke.
