British Landscape Watercolors,
Rarely exhibited and in superb condition, the watercolor collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge is one of the finest in the world. This book contains the gems of that collection―approximately 150, all of them reproduced large and in color, mostly for the first time. The most famous artists of this, the 'Golden Age' of British watercolor art, are all represented (Turner, Cotman, DeWint, Cox, Cozens, Girtin, Palmer, Constable, Ruskin, Sandby, Towne, Varley) together with some less well known, or better known for work in other media―Wilson, Wright of Derby, Romney, Gainsborough, Holland, for example. But the collection is most remarkable for the outstanding quality of the individual paintings, and Jane Munro (Senior Assistant Keeper at the Museum) emphasizes this in a text that closely examines each particular work and locates it in the artist's career.

Places of the Mind: British Watercolor Landscapes
A fresh, new perspective on British landscape drawing in the Victorian and Modern erasPlaces of the Mind focuses on landscape drawing in the Victorian and Modern age, challenging the perception that the best British watercolors were produced between 1750 and 1850. Drawing on the British Museum’s impressive collection, this book demonstrates the way in which artists of the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries drew on the tradition of renowned landscape artists Constable and Turner but developed and extended the genre, focusing on the changing nature of the British countryside during the Industrial Revolution and two world wars.Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, the book includes works by Victorian artists Sir Edward John Poynter and John Singer Sargent, and by many well-known twentieth-century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, and Henry Moore, some of which have never previously been published. 150 illustrations

Papermaking and the Art of Watercolor in Eighteenth-Century Britain: Paul Sandby and the Whatman Paper Mill (Yale Center for British
At the Royal Academy exhibition of 1794, Paul Sandby (1725–1809) exhibited his newly painted A View of Vinters at Boxley, Kent, with Mr. Whatman’s Turkey Paper Mills. Sandby, one of the founding members of the Royal Academy and one of the preeminent British landscape painters of the day, included the celebrated Whatman papermaking mill at the center of this landscape composition. James Whatman I and his son James Whatman II were the most famous English papermakers of the eighteenth century, and by 1760 Turkey Mill was the largest paper mill in the country.This handsome and engaging book looks at how the View of Vinters and Turkey Mill is both a superb example of Sandby’s art and an important document of the rise of industry in the British countryside and of the intertwined developments of papermaking and the art of painting in watercolor. It also features other watercolors by Sandby and materials relating to the processes of papermaking and to the Whatman family and its mill.
