Places of the mind: British watercolour landscapes 1850 – 1950
Drawn from the British Museum’s rich collection, this is the first exhibition devoted to landscape drawings and watercolours by British artists in the Victorian and modern eras – two halves of very different centuries. The display includes works by James McNeil Whistler, Edward Burne-Jones, John Singer Sargent, Muirhead Bone, Paul Nash, John Minton, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland. The show explores their technically brilliant, virtuoso and imaginative responses to the artistic, cultural and social upheavals of the time.
Exhibition runs until 27 August 2017
