Accompanying a traveling exhibition that was titled "An Eye for Beauty: Collectors and the History of British Watercolor" when it opened at the Huntington Library, and was later retitled "Gainsborough to Turner: British Watercolours from the Spooner Collection" when it appeared in a somewhat altered form first at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere and then at the Courtauld Institute of Art's Somerset House in London, this catalogue features more than 100 watercolors drawn from an important but little-known collection bequeathed to the Courtauld Institute in 1967, including landscapes, architectural studies and other works by such artists as Gainsborough, Towne, Girtin, Cotman, Constable, Rowlandson, Hunt, Palmer, Lear and Turner.
