Seeing the Colours

Image LANLM-1956-44 low res (image/jpeg)

Lancaster City Museum's latest project 'Seeing the Colours' has ensured that more than four-hundred of our watercolours and drawings can now be viewed online. It is a rare opportunity to explore a collection which, up until now, could not be permanently displayed due to the damage that can be done by exposing watercolours to light.

The following exhibition is just a taster of what is available online. Click on the links below to find out more about the life and work of specific artists; admire paintings and sketches of Lancaster's most famous landmarks, and re-live crucial moments of Lancaster's history through a series of vibrant watercolours.

Don't forget that if you want to see more work by you favourite artist, or look at other paintings of a similar view or landmark, you can search the rest of the collection using the online search facility.
