The Watercolor World

Event Date: 
Monday, June 1, 2020 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Before the invention of the camera, people used watercolours to document the world. Over the centuries, painters – both professional and amateur – created hundreds of thousands of images recording life as they witnessed it. Every one of these paintings has a story to tell, but many are hidden away in archives, albums and store rooms, too fragile to display. The Watercolour World is a free online database of documentary watercolours painted before 1900. Relax and enjoy the paintings!
