Sentimental journey

Sentimental journey
THE idealised landscapes and saintly children of 19th century British watercolour painters are being cast in a different light in a new exhibition at Carrick Hill.
Natural Wonders: Visions of Home and Abroad, featuring 40 rarely seen paintings from the Art Gallery of South Australia, attempts to reach beyond surface interpretations of the works…
By the 1800s most landscapes were being painted for city audiences. Ideas of national identity, travel and topography are explored, the presence of Queen Victoria looms large and the exhibition contains a sketch by Edward Lear, who taught Queen Victoria watercolour painting.
