About this title


This volume includes all the leading British artists of the period 1750–1850. Notable among them are watercolors of the Lake District by John White Abbott and rural scenes by several artists -- Gainsborough, Turner, Cozens, Rowlandson, Francis Towne, and Samuel Palmer. Architecture dominates the setting in works by Girtin, Cotman, and Sandby.

Accompanying essays focus on outdoor painting and the role of memory in watercolor painting, connoisseurship and attitudes toward watercolors, and William Wycliffe Spooner himself. This complete catalog of the collection bequeathed by Spooner to the Courtauld Institute is published to accompany an exhibition at the Huntington Library in California.

About the Author:

Michael Broughton is chairman of the W. W. Spooner Charitable Trust. Other contributors include William Clarke, John Murdoch, Joanna Selbourne, Greg Smith, and Robert Woof.
