Explore the rise of watercolour painting and printmaking through the pioneering works of Francis Nicholson (1753—1844), who was born in Pickering on the edge of the North York Moors. Guest curator Professor Gordon Bell presents a selection of Nicholson's Yorkshire paintings and prints completed between 1790 and 1830 — the ‘Golden Age' of British watercolours. Professor Bell will also host a lecture and conducted tour during the exhibition. Meet the Curator: Saturday 17 May, 12 noon — 3pm, with music by harpist Elisabeth Westhead, for 30 minutes at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm
