They developed a style based on swirling, sinuous forms derived from nature but highly stylised. Much of the imagery was drawn from insects, peacocks and so on, and there w...

The post-war years were a period of rapid evolution in British society. In the wake of the catastrophe that had brought all aspects of cultural production to a hiatus, many sensed an opportunity to re-address and re-invent notions of ‘Britishness’ as expressed in the arts.
