The Aestheticism (1860-1900) aimed to escape the ugliness and materialism of the Industrial Age, by focusing instead on producing — “Art for Art’s sake”, and in doing so remade the domestic world of the British middle classes. Today it is acknowledged for its revolutionary renegotiation of the relationships between the artist and society, between art and ethics, and between the fine and decorative arts, all of which prepared the way for the art movements of the C20th.
