web site covers British art from the 1850s onwards. It is dedicated to
the enjoyment of traditional watercolours, oils and pastels from that period. The emphasis is on
the evocation of nature, either in landscapes, seascapes or still life.
Whether it is the simulation of the misty scenery of Devon by Frederick
J. Widgery (see right), the more modern coastal views of Jean
Canter (see below) or flower pictures (such as the example by Mary
Butler below), these paintings create a strong reaction in the viewer.
The site is primarily educational in
that it shows you typical pictures from some of the artists in this
period, with biographical notes. Go to
the Gallery tab for more background
