This survey explores the importance of English watercolor in the 19th century, demonstrating its technical development and influence in Europe and America. It provides a broad look at watercolor as both a minor medium for major artists such as Turner, Delacroix, the Impressionists, and Cezanne and a major medium for many minor artists who practiced it solely. Finch, a curator and a watercolorist himself, picks up here where he left off in his two previous books, American Watercolors ( LJ 11/1/86) and Twentieth- Century Watercolors ( LJ 2/1/89), to weave together a useful history. The production of this book is of high quality and the layout careful, placing reproductions beside or as close as possible to the relevant text. The clear prose will satisfy specialists as well as interested lay readers. Recommended for public, special, and academic libraries.
