Watercolour - Tate Britain

Howard Hogkins

Watercolour takes us back to the origins of watercolour in the form of medieval illumination and traces its history thereafter, showing how the increasing portability of the medium allowed artists to travel with their paints to far-flung regions, documenting what they saw, from new fauna and flora to on-the-spot recording of new landscapes and events. Before the advent of photography, watercolour was the medium of choice for eye-witness evidence.
