This display presents for the first time watercolour during the Renaissance as a unified art form, highlighting its versatility and pivotal role in understanding, interpreting and documenting the natural world.
During the Renaissance, an era of expanding horizons and cultural exchange, watercolour flourished across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Its versatility, portability and immediacy made it ideal for painting directly from life. It was also widely used for designs, copies, modelli and cartoons. However, the Renaissance watercolour has never been considered as a coherent artistic genre and due to their light sensitivity, watercolours are seldom put on permanent display.
This display will therefore be a rare opportunity to experience these delicate objects.
