Rarely exhibited and in superb condition, the watercolour collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge is one of the finest in the world. This book contains the gems of that collection - approximately 150, all of them reproduced large and in colour, mostly for the first time. The most famous artists of this, the 'Golden Age' of British watercolour art, are all represented (Turner, Cotman, DeWint, Cox, Cozens, Girtin, Palmer, Constable, Ruskin, Sandby, Towne, Varley) together with some less well known, or better known for work in other media - Wilson, Wright of Derby, Romney, Gainsborough, Holland, for example. But the collection is most remarkable for the outstanding quality of the individual paintings, and Jane Munro (Senior Assistant Keeper at the Museum) emphasizes this in a text that closely examines each particular work and locates it in the artist's career.
