Portraits of British Schools

<< Back to other books

The schools featured in this book contain some of the most splendid architecture and scenery in The British Isles. The medium used by distinguished British artists, to portray all but one of the sixty five schools is the quintessentially British genre of watercolour painting which is ideal for the portrayal of architectural subjects. The genesis for most of this collection of watercolours, are the series of paintings commissioned, by Contemporary Watercolours, from which limited edition prints have been made. These have been produced over a period of 25 years and encompass the whole of the British Isles including all but six of the forty traditional counties of England.


The book which measures 10 3/4" x 8 1/2" (27cm x 21cm) contains 65 colour plates and features Schools scenes familiar to all.
