Early 19th Century English School.:
'English school' as it is now referred to became the dominant school of painting in England throughout the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th. Its establishment marked the rise of a national tradition that began with the emergence of native artists whose works were no longer provincial but rivalled continental art in quality and ended by exercising considerable influence on the course of European painting.
