A comprehensive and beautifully illustrated history of watercolor, printed on a special paper stock

Marie-Pierre Salé's landmark volume tells the story of how watercolor, long dismissed as a mere tool for preparatory studies or a "feminine" pastime, was recognized for its luminosity, immediacy, and atmospheric potential. It covers every type of work from Dürer's animal studies to Sargent's light-dappled sketches, exploring social institutions like the nineteenth-century watercolor societies. An appendix traces the technical development of the medium.

Watercolor: A History features more than three hundred full-color illustrations, specially printed on Munken paper to capture the vibrancy and texture of the original works. It is sure to be welcomed by artists, scholars, and art lovers alike. 300 full-color illustrations
