John Sell Cotman in Norwich and London

11 Jun 2018–29 Sep 2019


A chance to explore the last two decades of Cotman's life through iconic late watercolours and rarely seen drawings. One of the most original watercolourists of the nineteenth century, John Sell Cotman (1782-1842) is justly celebrated for the ground-breaking watercolours he made after visiting Yorkshire in 1803, 1804 and 1805. His later work, however, is less known. The drawings and watercolours in this exhibition focus on the last two decades of Cotman’s life and introduce an artist who never tired of experimenting and innovating to a wider audience.
