Watercolour has long been seen as a distinctive part of the British cultural heritage, with British artists acknowledged to be among its greatest exponents. Featuring classic works by artists including Turner, Girtin and Samuel Palmer, this book features watercolours by modern and contemporary artists including Anish Kapoor and Terry Frost. Separate sections look at watercolour in cartography and scientific illustration; the way its portability allowed it to capture the impressions of travellers; its arrival as a subject of exhibitions; its facility as a medium of the interior vision of artists including William Blake, Richard Dadd, the Pre-Raphaelites and the Surrealists; and, its adoption as the chosen medium of war artists.
