Summary note
This sumptuous visual history explores London as depicted by artists over the last few hundred years. Although the first city of London was established in the Roman period, the story of London in art really begins in the 17th century, with the rise of the panoramic city view as a painting genre, and continues to this day. Despite London's tumultuous history - the rise and fall of Empire, attacks from above in two world wars, relentless expansion into the surrounding villages and suburbs - it nevertheless becomes clear that many of the city's landmarks remain surprisingly constant.
