This course was previously taught by Dr Jeni Fraser when it was offered by the University of Exeter*. If you studied it with the University of Exeter* you might not wish to study it again with Learn for Pleasure as although we have revised and updated our courses where necessary, it will likely be substantively the same.


At the start of the twentieth century, as the traditional centres for art shifted away from France and Germany, new movements began to emerge to build on or challenge established art forms.

This course will guide you through the social, political and economic contexts that influenced art production in Britain and America during the first half of a new century, as these changes were taking place.
