Watercolors in the 19th and 20th Centuries
In the late 19th century, watercolor became prevalent as a medium that artists employed to create luminous plein-air sketches, preparatory studies, and intimately sized finished works. By virtue of its transparency and its use to enhance drawings, watercolor paintings reveal the hand of the artist. Looking closely at watercolors can give us insights into the intentions and methods of the artists who painted them. We will examine watercolors by artists such as Turner, Whistler, Daumier, Delacroix, Cézanne, Hopper, Chagall, Sargent, Homer, O'Keeffe, Prendergast, Marin, and others whose more celebrated works were painted in oil.
