Earth: Digging Deep in British Art 1781 – 2022 is a major exhibition spanning four centuries of artwork. Earth examines how attitudes towards landscape have evolved over the centuries and how artists approaches have changed over time; from the pastoral idylls of the 18thcentury, through representations of the Romantic Sublime, to present-day confrontations of the climate emergency.
