Since it’s opening day on June 20th, the exhibit has been receiving positive reviews:

‘This gem of a show has history, colour and character […] compact, beautifully installed and filled with ravishing works of art. Stephen Duffy’s Catalogue is a mine of information, and it tells us as much about the history of Paris as it does about the history of art.’ – Richard Dorment, The Daily Telegraph

“Lose yourself in pretty Parisian panoramas, captured in wonderful watercolours by 19th-century British artists”
– Where London?

9780900785429If you don’t have the chance to visit the Wallace Collection, or you have visited the exhibit and would like to take it home with you, Paul Holberton Publishing has released and accompanying catalog with the same name as the exhibition; The Discovery of Paris: Watercolours by Early Nineteenth-Century British Artists.

This catalog will accompany an exciting exhibition at the Wallace Collection of British watercolor views of Paris. Focusing on the period c. 1802–40, it will feature works by Turner, Girtin and Bonington, as well as other artists who are now perhaps less familiar, such as Thomas Shotter Boys, Francis Danby and William Callow.
