  3. 3. “The Golden Age” of English Painting The period from Hogarth to Constable and Turner, that is the period between the 1730 & the 1830, is considered to be the Golden Age of English painting. Never in any other period did England contribute so much to the history of world art. English art had some peculiarities. Right from the beginning English artists worked almost only for some private person. That’s why portrait painting was the leading national genre of the English school. The landscape painting began to attract the attention of painters in the middle of the 18th century, but didn’t win the love of the public for a long time. It began to flourish in the 19th century. As for genre-painting it became popular at the end of the 18th century. Brilliant artists of that time made English painting one of the famous among the Europian art schools.
