Description
Christopher Finch discusses his book, “Nineteenth Century Watercolors.” He begins by talking about artist William Turner who is considered to be the most famous watercolorist of the 19th century. He describes how to preserve a watercolor painting and the difficulty with fading colors, fragile paper, and keeping a shiny surface. Finch discusses the work of many 19th century watercolorists such as William Blake, Paul Cezanne, Winslow Homer, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Paul Gauguin, and Vincent Van Gogh. He ends the interview by talking about his formal training as a painter, and how he has written books on popular culture, art history, and on his love for watercolors.
