Panvertu Art Gallery - Home Page

This 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 information or to browse the pictures; go to the Artists tab to see a list of the artists covered. Some of the pictures are available for sale - contact Panvertu if you have an interest in any pictures. Go to the Legal tab for more information on sales and general conditions of use of this site. If you are interested in exhibiting your own pictures on this web site then please go to the Exhibiting page for more information.

The site provides high resolution images and we recommend that you use a high speed or broadband internet link, otherwise you may find it somewhat slow in parts.  Click on any picture to see a larger, higher resolution image.
