From the luminous landscapes of Turner, Cozens and Girtin, through to the evocative watercolours of William Blake and the Pre-Raphaelites, the 'golden age' of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British watercolour has defined a powerful ideal of British art. Published to accompany a major touring exhibition, and including four searching essays, this richly illustrated book celebrates the greatest artists of the genre while throwing new light on this much-loved medium. As well as works by acknowledged masters, paintings by modern artists including John Piper, Graham Sutherland and Anish Kapoor are presented alongside lesser-known works of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Works by amateur and long- overlooked artists are also featured, providing a thought-provoking new exploration of the richness and variety of watercolour in Britain.
Martin Myrone is Curator (18th & 19th Century British Art), Tate Britain.
