Challenging preconceptions: Watercolour

If you plan to visit London this spring or summer, you might be interested in Watercolour, a special exhibition at Tate Britain (until August 21) that invites you to challenge your preconceptions of what watercolour is. “The most ambitious exhibition about watercolour ever to be staged.”

Admission to Tate Britain is free, but special exhibitions like this have an admission fee (£12.70, certainly not cheap.)




The exhibition presents a full and fresh assessment on the history and future of watercolour painting. It aims to question our thoughts on what watercolour stands for, presenting famous and lesser-known works side by side and bringing this popular, universal and enduring medium back to the centre of our cultural heritage.

A 228-page book - catalogue with 170 colour illustrations has also been published especially for the occasion.
