Thomas Shotter Boys, The Pavillon de Flore

Paris had been painted many times before, but never more beautifully than by nineteenth-century British artists, and very rarely by artists of such high standing in their own countries. Their styles also varied widely, from the precision of Thomas Shotter Boys, whose superb watercolours will be some of the stars of the show, to the incomparable verve of Turner at his most intense.

Oh boy. At the Wallace Collection.
