VICTORIAN LANDSCAPE WATERCOLORS. Scott Wilcox and Christopher Newall. Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, 1992. Published in association with Hudson Hills Press, Inc., New York. 196 pp. with 130 ills. (126 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 92-10149 ISBN 155595071X In English.
The first substantial review of the contributions of Victorian watercolorists to the traditions of landscape painting in Britain, this catalogue features fine reproductions and individual analyses of 126 works by more than 70 artists, including Walter Crane, William Holman Hunt, Edward Lear, Samuel Palmer, Albert Goodwin and many lesser-known figures. Four scholarly essays discuss the influence of Cox, Turner and other artists on Victorian landscape watercolorists, examine the significant impact of Ruskin's aesthetic views on the development of British landscape painting in the late 19th century, trace the activities of the major watercolor societies of the period, and identify the innovative and conservative trends reflected in the exhibited works.
