Synopsis

2014 marks three hundred years since the arrival of the Hanoverians to the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. The Georgian Revolution examines the period from their succession in 1714, through the reigns of George I (1714-27) and George II (1727-60) to 1760. During these years Britain was arguably the most advanced country in Europe, undergoing one of the most dramatic periods in history; a revolution affecting almost every facet of its political, intellectual and cultural life. This comprehensive catalogue considers the artistic patronage of the first Hanoverian monarchs, as well as the works acquired by Queen Caroline and Frederick, Prince of Wales, many of which have never been seen publicly or catalogued fully before. It includes works produced in Britain, France and Germany during their reigns and explores all aspects of life and art during this revolutionary period.
