Spanning from 1860 to 1900, the Aesthetic Movement rejoiced in the concept of ‘Art for Art’s Sake’. Proponents of Aestheticism rejected the ugliness of the Industrial Age and instead crafted pieces that concentrated on the beauty of an object above all else.
It was the writer and critic Walter Hamilton who first named the movement, on his publishing of ‘The Aesthetic Movement in England’ in 1882.
