Wander a room devoted to art from 1900–1910, a period in flux

This was a period that continued the exploration of Realism of the nineteenth century and also its literary and mythical themes, but adapted to twentieth century anxieties and aspirations.
Curator Carol Jacobi

Queen Victoria was on the throne until 1901, and was succeeded by her son Edward VII, who reigned during the first decade of the century. As we move from the Victorian to the Edwardian era in art, we find some interesting juxtapositions – between artists who were classically trained and painting traditional subjects, and those who were eager to explore new, avant-garde themes and approaches.
