Places of the Mind: British Watercolour Landscapes

This beautiful book looks at British Watercolours produced between 1850 and 1950. Drawing on the British Museum's impressive collection, this book explores artists' spiritual quests to capture the essence of landscape and convey a sense of place. Artists of the later 19th and early 20th centuries drew on earlier traditions but developed and extended the genre through their imaginative, personal responses to the artistic, cultural and social upheavals of the time.

Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this book includes works by Victorian artists Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Poynter and by many well known 20th-century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore, many of which have never previously been published.
