About the Event
This talk examines how landscape prints promoted aesthetic appreciation of British scenery - and vice versa - as horizons, both geographical and artistic, expanded in the late Georgian period. At the height of the cult of the Picturesque tour, the impact of new printing techniques is considered during this golden age of watercolour painting.
