Literature
Music
During the Restoration and the 18th Century, music hit a transition from the Baroque Era to the Classical Era. Music from the Baroque Era focused more on the embellishment and complexity of music. Compostions such as Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Handel's Messiah, denote the decoration of Baroque music. These ornamented pieces usually reflected the power of monarchs. Contrastingly, most music from the Classical Era was less complicated and predictable. This music was very logical and straightforward. Pieces such Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik show the repetitiveness of Classical music and its predictability. The Classical Era also had many secular compositions and compostitions with more expression.

French Revolution begins
Ideas of innovation extend to politics as well, as shown by the various revolutions that occurred in this time period. People who were discontent with government or policies were encouraged to speak out and tell people their opinion. This idea of self-expression led to the proliferation of intellectual prose forms such as the essay.
George Fredric Handel debuted his oratorio Messiah first in Dublin, April 13, 1742. The composition introduced a technique called text painting, where the musical notes reflect the lyrics. This piece was an ornamented piece that was meant to be a scriptural anthology set to music.

England, Wales, and Scotland are politically unified as Great Britain
Many of these Enlightenment thinkers emphasized cooperation to learn about the world around them; the political influence of these thinkers may have spurred the unification of England, Wales, and Scotland.
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu introduces inoculation against smallpox, originally a Turkish practice
Cooperation was also present in the arts and sciences, evidenced by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu introducing the Turkish practice of inoculation against disease (in this case, smallpox).
Benjamin Franklin invents lightning rod
Invention and innovation was also rampant; Benjamin Franklin, another primary Enlightenment thinker, invented everything from lightning rods to bifocal glasses.
Glorious Revolution in which King James II is overthrown by Parliament and replaced with Protestant monarchs William and Mary
Once Charles II proved himself an incompetent and near-tyrannical ruler, faith in the monarchy began to fade. Led by Parliament and allied with the Dutch stadtholder William III of Orange-Nassau (William of Orange), the British people overthrew Charles II and installed his daughter, Mary, and William in the monarchy. This event, known as the Glorious Revolution, marked the beginning of Britain’s entrance into the Enlightenment period. This time period had values reminiscent of the Renaissance—people focused on observing the world around them and learning about the arts and sciences. There was an emphasis on logic and making rational and beneficial decisions; much of the literature published in this period emphasized the right course of action, human nature, and being an educated citizen.
John Locke publishes An Essay Concerning Human Understanding
One of the most influential Enlightenment thinkers, John Locke, published An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, which described the foundation of human nature. Locke describes the mind as a blank slate at birth, with it being “written on” via experiences later in life. Locke’s ideas in this essay formed the basis of empiricism and influenced many other influential Enlightenment philosophers.

Social Reforms
Progressive thinkers made much social progress as well during this period. The ideas of politeness and social norms developed greatly during this time, and many advances in women’s rights especially were made. Women were allowed to play female roles in plays, writers such as Mary Astell began to advocate for better education for women, and women began to publish literature widely.

An example of
Grand Manner
art - uses idealized style based on classical art. British artists used the term to describe paintings that used
symbolism
to confer a sense of
nobility
on the subject
Lawrence was another famous portrait artist who was appointed to Reynolds' position as a result of this piece
This work was one of the
predecessors
to
Romanticism
in 19th century British art
Reynolds was the most famous artist in England during this time and was chief painter for KIng George III. This was an example of a
conversation piece
– a piece that portrayed friends and relatives enjoying a leisurely activity.
This genre of portraiture originated from 17th-century Dutch and French works.
Joseph Wright was known for his oil portraits and for his mastery of chalks and pastels. In this work, the open-necked gown, turned head, and downward gaze of the subject indicates that this is an
informa
l work rather than a commissioned portrait
Principles of Art
During the Restoration and 18th century, there was belief in power of the
individual
, and
human reason
was valued over prescribed doctrines. There was much foreign artistic influence during this age, but a distinctly British style began to form.
Art began to focus more on the middle class and transitioned from formal portraiture to works with
more creative freedom
. In addition, some
satiric
works that challenged political corruption began to appear.
However, there remained a sense of
nobility and refinement
in much of the artwork. Many artists still tended to imitate the works of other artists rather than experiment with new techniques, which highlighted the preference for
some

stability
during this time period.

During the Restoration and the Eighteenth Century, order, decorum, and clarity were highly valued both in life and in literature. As the Restoration began there was a great emphasis on decorum, as can be seen in works such as The Pilgrim’s Progress, which emphasizes morality and Christianity. Then, at the start of the Eighteenth Century there was a rise in satire, which most often criticized the immoral and idealistic practices in England. Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope were especially influential satirists, focusing on human nature, English treatment of the poor, and the life-style of the English upper-class. Many authors of the time turned to “neoclassicism”, in which they attempted to recapture the structure of classic literature while using highly visual diction. Furthermore, the world of literature opened up to many new groups including women and African-Americans as can be seen through Phillis Wheatley’s Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral and Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Poetry as well was written and published by all during England’s “Augustan Age,” occurring toward the end of the Eighteenth Century. This poetry was characterized by a focus on human nature and was classified into “high” and “low” verse depending on the class of the person who wrote it.
Principles of Literature

Toccata and Fugue in D minor
Toccata and Fugue written by Johann Sebastian Bach was created for the sole purpose of showing off his keyboard virtuosity. This affected the way European composers wrote music in the Baroque era. Music leaned more towards embellishment rather than simplicity.
Canon in D
Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D was a chorale
written for three violins. Although this piece
was written in the mid-Baroque Era, it is
predictable and repetitive, both of which are
characteristics of a classical time period
composition.
