This catalog accompanies an exhibition of watercolors from the National Collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum. A selection of one hundred works are illustrated and discussed, ranging from the mid-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth century and showing the wealth and variety of this often neglected sphere of British painting. Through a critical reading of the works, Johnson examines and challenges notions of the relations between painting and history, criticism and theory.Read more
