Luminous Landscapes: The Golden Age of British Watercolors

Explore acclaimed landscape paintings from the “Golden Age of Watercolor” at this special Gibbes exhibition. Watercolor took root at the start of the 18th century in the form of typography, a type of realistic mapping of places. Over the years, the medium evolved into a more Romantic style as artists began experimenting with colors, lighting, and looser brushstrokes. Luminous Landscapes features English painters John Varley, Paul Sandby, and David Cox Sr., and their paintings of the countryside, sea, and village life. Gibbes Museum of Art, 135 Meeting St. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Saturday, 10am-5pm; Wednesday, 10am-8pm; Sunday, 1pm-5pm. $12; $10 senior, military, & student; $6 ages four-17.
