British Library: Georgians Revealed

Screenshot
Britain's Georgian Era (marked by the reigns of King George's I-IV) ran from the early eighteenth century into the early nineteenth century. This period was marked by numerous artistic developments: Romantic poetry, unique architecture and design, and flamboyant fashion among others. With this collection from the British Library, visitors can explore a number of items that illustrate the aesthetics of the Georgian Era. Perhaps the highlight of this collection are the paintings, which visitors can zoom in on in order to explore in detail. These paintings include Robert John Thornton's Temple of Flora and Quadrangular Passion-Flower, John Nash's The Royal Pavilion at Brighton series, and a number of works by George Cruikshank. Other items of note include historic maps, sketches of dresses, and sheet music from George Handel's Messiah.
