Thomas Gainsborough and JMW Turner, with further featured artists including Thomas Jones Barker, Glyn Philpot, architect John Nash, and Edwin Long.

Works of art - particularly from the Georgian period - depict some of fashionable Bath's most popular places, including the Pulteney Bridge, The Roman Baths, The Pump Room, The King's Bath, The Royal Crescent, and The Assembly Rooms.
