About author:

Victorian watercolors (c.1835-c.1900) represent the culmination of developments described under Late Georgian watercolors. They are a remarkable high point in the watercolor tradition, both in the diversity of the artistic styles and in the technical sophistication of the paintings. Yet this is also a period of imaginative mediocrity and naked kitsch: as Martin Hardie wrote, "to a large extent the water-colours of the Victorian era reflect the dullness, vulgarity, pretentiousness and self-righteousness of the period." Unfortunately, this dour critical verdict has consigned many amazing technical achievements to unjustified obscurity. These works still have much to teach the contemporary painter.

    This truly is a fantastic painting and I've been thoroughly impressed with this artwork. The https://www.essaywritinglab.co.uk/dissertation/ were saying how such depth and detail in such paintings is incredibly difficult to replicate. And to see it happen, it's truly great.
