WATERCOLOUR WORLD - COLLECTION HELD AT

BRUCE CASTLE MUSEUM - TOTTENHAM

 

Before the invention of the camera, people used watercolours to document the world. Over the centuries, painters both professional and amateur created hundreds of thousands of images recording life as they witnessed it. Every one of these paintings has a story to tell, but many are hidden away in archives, albums and store rooms, too fragile to display. The Watercolour World exists to bring them back into view.

 Watercolour World have created a free online database of documentary watercolours painted before 1900. You can explore these fascinating visual records on a world map, search for topics that are important to you, and compare watercolours from multiple collections in one place.

Here are just a few of the water colour collection held at Bruce Castle Museum in Tottenham and we acknowledge this as our source.
