The Norwich School of Painters were a group of artists living and painting in Norwich in the late 18th and early 19th century. They included John Crome, John Sell Cotman, and others who can justifiably be considered masters of 19th century British art and they formed the Norwich Society of Artists which was the first and longest lasting provincial artists association to hold regular exhibitions in Britain.
