THE GOLDEN AGE OF ENGLISH WATERCOLOUR EXHIBITION
15 SEPTEMBER - 5 NOVEMBER 2018
This exhibition explores the revolution in watercolour painting around 1800. It draws on Winchester's extensive collection of  English works on paper, and inlcudes works on Francis Towne, Thomas Girtin, John Sell Cotman and JMW Turner. The exhibition shows how these artists discovered the potential of the watercolour medium to capture fleeting effects of light and atmosphere, producing richly coloured and expressive works of art.
