Summary

A celebration of the glory of British watercolours from the Victorian period. This new book features over eighty artworks by more than seventy artists that represent the glory of British watercolours from the Victorian period. Artists include: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, George John Pinwell and Myles Birket Foster. It is the second in a series on prints and drawings drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Peter Raissis explores the social, cultural and technical background to watercolour painting in 19th-century Victorian Britain, as well as the reception and appreciation of the medium both in Britain and Australia. Entries on each of the works give insights into the painters' lives and the differing subject matter, ranging from everyday life and landscape to the worlds of fantasy and imagination. Beautifully designed and luxuriously illustrated, this book will appeal to both specialists and a broader audience.
