With the onset of the mid 19th century, certain Victorian artists saw their role as social reformers, documenting the human toll of poverty, disease, crime and inequality believing deeply in the power of visual culture and literature to solve social divides. In this online course that accompanies our exhibition Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain, discover the artists, artworks and events that introduced a new socially conscious approach to art, from exhibitions in the slums to new craft industries and art of the suffrage movement.
