A fresh new perspective on British landscape drawing and watercolours in the Victorian and Modern eras.
Drawing on the the British Museum's impressive collection, this book explores artists' spiritual quests to capture the essence of landscape and convey a sense of place.
Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this book includes works by Victorian artists Edward Burnes-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rosetti and Edward Poynter and by many well known 20th century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore, some of which have never previously been published.
