    British artists first began to explore the particular aesthetic qualities of watercolours in the mid-18th century and quickly recognized the versatility of the medium. In this book Catherine Coombs explores the complexity of the history of watercolour in Britain and introduces 129 examples from the national collection of British watercolours at the V&A, arranged chronologically from Paul Sandby's Prospect of the Tower of London (c.1746) to paintings by Kenneth Rowntree and Mary Stella Edwards in the 1940s.
