Neo Romantics: Caroline Bacon

"Around WWII contemporary art critics identified a new art movement they termed Neo-Romanticism that paid homage to the past works of Blake and Palmer, while influenced by Surrealism and Abstract art. Artists such as Nash, Sutherland, Piper, Craxton and Minton delivered poetic visions of landscape and a ‘sense of place’ infused with the unease of impending war and an optimism in its aftermath. "
