British Romantic Views of the First Anglo-Burmese WarBritish Romantic Views of the First Anglo-Burmese War, 1824-1826  
Richard Cooler
0-614-08061-4      28 pages    1977

The twenty-eight aquatints in the exhibition for the MCAA meetings at Northern Illinois University were executed from drawings made "on the spot" by two officers of the British Expeditionary Force in Burma. Their work is exemplary of the fashionable pursuit of the picturesque. The prints are of aesthetic interest because the circumstances of their origin are a direct outgrowth of the enormous interest in the picturesque that existed at this time, both in England and her colonies. The dichotomy seen between picturesque fantasy and the reality of the war is a direct result of the strong British commitment to the Cult of the Picturesque which was one aspect of the Romantic Movement
