Kenneth Clark looks at the sudden decline, in about 1730, of Christianity as the chief creative force in western civilisation. During the next hundred years a new belief in the divinity of nature shaped artistic thought. Kenneth Clark examines this new force in the work of Wordsworth, Rousseau, Turner, and Constable.
