Life, Legend, Landscape: Victorian Drawings and Watercolours
This catalogue presents a rich selection of Victorian drawings and watercolours from the important collection of The Courtauld Gallery, London. It features many previously unpublished works and ranges from informal preparatory drawings for paintings and sculptures to exquisite highly finished exhibition watercolours.
The selection includes life studies, landscapes, genre scenes, portraits and subjects from literature. Stretching from J.M.W. Turner to the Pre-Raphaelites and works of the 1890s by Whistler and Aubrey Beardsley, Life, Legend, Landscape features the major artists of the era and explores the exciting diversity of Victorian draughtsmanship.
