Painting in Watercolours was mastered by British artists in the 19th century.
Whether the medium was so favoured is down to the weather or the British temperament
But painting in Watercolours is a highly skilled discipline, using subtle colour
washes to capture the mood of a scene.
The 20th century saw a much looser style in fashion. You will notice some of the drawings
are "attributed" to an artist. This is due to the fact that it is unsigned but bears
close resemblance to the style of painting used by that particular artist.
Any number of accomplished artists never signed their work, especially in the early
part of the 19th century. I always buy on the strength of the work.
