Richard Wilson (1714 - 1782) and the Transformation of European Landscape Painting
This major loan exhibition marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Richard Wilson (1714-1782), perhaps Wales’s greatest artist.
Before Wilson, British artists painted the landscape to record its appearance. Wilson showed how landscape paintings could have layers of meanings and convey mood and emotions too.
