The Victorian Aesthetic was a crucial movement in shaping our society as we know it today, and opened the gateway to the craft movement at the end of the 19th Century as a reaction to the industrial revolution and mass production.
"During the mid-19th century, the provocative and sensuous Aesthetic movement threatened to dismantle Britain's fussy, overbearing, and conservative Victorian traditions. More than a fine art movement, Aestheticism penetrated all areas of life - from music and literature to interior design and fashion. At its heart was the desire to create "art for art's sake" and to exalt taste, the pursuit of beauty, and self-expression over moral expectations and restrictive conformity." (theartstory.org)
