Visions of Oxford and Cambridge

<< Back to other books

Our latest book represents Contemporary Watercolours’ definitive Oxbridge collection of paintings produced over the last twenty-five years, of the Colleges and University buildings of our two premier universities. We have commissioned leading members of the Royal Watercolour Society who are renowned, as was legendary J.M.W. Turner, for their topographical draughtsmanship. It is a happy coincidence that it is exactly 200 years ago in 1815 that Rudolph Ackerman completed his two volume Histories of Oxford and Cambridge Universities, with paintings by leading watercolourists of the day Pugin, Westall and McKenzie. Nothing since has been produced on this scale until now with the publication in May 2015 of “Visions of Oxford and Cambridge”.

For the past ten years Contemporary Watercolours has been actively involved with the Mayfair and St James’s Committee of Cancer Research UK which regularly meets and holds its Annual Auction at the Oxford and Cambridge Club in London. We have decided, therefore, to donate 50% of the profits from the sale of Visions of Oxford and Cambridge to Cancer Research UK.


The Book is a unique undertaking and is offered to alumni at a special pre-publication price of £19.95 + p & p (128 pages hardback).
