Victorian Tour of Devon & Wales

Sort by

These subtly coloured watercolour paintings from the 1870s traverse land and sea along the Pembrokeshire and Devon coasts, with the occasional foray further afield to the snow capped mountains of Switzerland. Views include the Imperial Hotel, Anstey's Cove and London Bridge Rock Formation at Torquay, and Tenby Castle and Five Arches. With their attention to chromatic and textural contrast, these paintings are a charming example of the 19th-century British landscape watercolour tradition.
