The Spooner Collection of watercolours is one of the finest of its kind, featuring all the leading artists of the period 1750 - 1850. Notable among them are watercolours of the Lake District by John White Abbott, and rural scenes by several artists - Gainsborough, Turner, Cozens, Rowlandson, Francis Towne, Samuel Palmer. Architecture dominates the setting, in works by Girtin, Cotman and Sandby. The essays accompanying the catalogue discuss outdoor painting and the role of memory in watercolour painting, the connoisseurship, and attitudes towards watercolours; and give a brief biography of William Wycliffe Spooner himself. This complete catalogue of the collection, bequeathed by Spooner to the Courtauld Institute, is published on the occasion of a touring exhibition of select works from the collection, showing at The Worsworth Trust, Grasmere; The Huntingdon Library, California; and the Courtauld Institute Gallery, London, 2005 - 2006.
