Product description

'The Hickman Bacon Watercolour Collection'. Large format paperback as new.

In 2012 the Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal exhibited more than 40 outstanding works from the magnificent collection assembled by Sir Hickman Bacon one hundred years ago, one of the most important private holdings of British 18th and 19th century watercolours in the world. At the centre of the show was the towering figure of JMW Turner who, pushed to ever greater heights through his association with his contemporary, Thomas Girtin, transformed the medium and raised the humble watercolour to a technical and aesthetic level previously unimaginable. Includes other exceptional innovators, including John Robert Cozens and John Sell Cotman, neglected at the time that the astute Sir Hickman Bacon acquired their watercolours but who are now recognised as true masters of the art.
