Product description

British Watercolours 1750-1950

The art of watercolour has had a distinctive history in Britain since the latter part of the 18th century, when British artists first began to explore its particular aesthetic qualities. The V&A holds the UK's national collection of watercolours, and this book showcases its breadth and diversity. Ranging from personal sketches inspired by nature to virtuoso exhibition pieces, and from colourful literary illustrations to imaginative expressions of a more private vision, British Watercolours includes works by all the leading exponents of watercolour, from J. R. Cozens and William Blake to J. M. W. Turner, David Cox, and Samuel Palmer. British Watercolours ends with examples from the first half of the 20th century, with Neo-Romantic artists such as Graham Sutherland.

Great condition book , includes sleeve with slight shelf wear, gorgeous coloured images throughout. All pages in excellent condition.
