We had the press launch this morning of a new digital website http://www.watercolourworld.org, which, as its name implies, makes freely available the watercolours, which have hitherto been difficult to locate in private and public libraries throughout the world. Of course, the collections of the V&A, the national collection of watercolours, are available online. But who would have known that Winchester College owns a watercolour showing the construction of the London to Brighton railway ? It will open up an unfathomable wealth of images of the late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century world.

Dear Charles, I am getting a Buy Domains message when I click through on watercolourworld.com. The same occurs when I type it in.
Ah. I have had a wee trawl and I think the problem is that the website is watercolourworld.org. It looks fascinating.
Yes, my mistake. I’ve corrected it. Charles
Thank you for sharing. What an invaluable website!
