Antique Watercolour Paintings

Employed by artists for centuries to capture a moment in time with immediacy and vitality, watercolour painting possesses a beauty and charm all its own. Artists often paint with watercolours en plein air, or outdoors, utilising the fluidity and vibrancy of the medium to seize transient effects, whether of the movements of clouds or the play of daylight on the face of a building.

Mayfair Gallery holds an extensive collection of exquisite watercolour paintings, including a remarkable array of Orientalist works (watercolour long being favoured by Orientalist artists to convey the blanching brightness of the desert). Browse our collection below to discover the beauty and variety of watercolour painting, and find the perfect work to hang on your wall.
