About

This exhibition explores what watercolour can achieve in terms of technique and expression that no other medium can, and why it is capable of producing an astonishing variety of effects, from subtle atmospheric washes to brilliant translucent colour. British artists have been among the greatest exponents of watercolour, and the medium has long been regarded as a distinctive part of British cultural heritage. The exhibition celebrates the association of watercolour with famous masters such as Blake, Turner and Girtin, and also presents watercolour's huge range and appeal, for amateurs and professionals, for show and intimacy, for realistic representation and for hallucinatory or abstract invention.
