This book explores the art of watercolour from its beginnings in medieval illuminated manuscripts, cartography and early botanical illustration, through the ‘Golden Age’ of British watercolour and the radical experiments of the Symbolists, right up to its rediscovery by contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin and Anish Kapoor today. While it includes classic works by famous names including J.M.W. Turner, William Blake, Thomas Girtin and Samuel Palmer, it also features many less familiar figures, raising questions about British art and identity as well as examining the techniques and processes involved in watercolour itself.
