SPARTA Lecture: 'Was there an English Renaissance?'

Jonathan Jones, art critic of The Guardian, asks if the Renaissance reached Britain. An Italian artist who worked for Henry VIII complained about having to endure “those beasts of Englishmen.”

Was art essentially foreign to us in the age when St Paul’s School was founded? Jones explores Tudor Britain in the light of his new book, Sensations: The Story of British Art from Hogarth to Banksy.
