The Industrial Revolution had a profound impact on the natural environment, radically changing the appearance of the world. This exhibition explores the approach of the pre-Raphaelites and their contemporary French early Impressionists like Pissarro or Cézanne to these changes. Radical Landscapes looks at how the artists’ approaches to painting en plein air developed alongside increased leisure and tourism, the proliferation of the railways and the influence of religion.

The exhibition draws together major works from museums and galleries across the UK including Manchester Art Gallery, the Harris Museum & Art Gallery and National Galleries Scotland.
