watercolor (noun) A method of painting comprising pigments dissolve in water, discovered in China in the third century. This art, as we know it today was born in England in the eighteenth century with the work of Paul Sandby and was developed by Thomas Girtin, John Sell Cotman and JMW Turner. Other masters of the watercolor include Raoul Dufy, Paul Cézanne, and John Marin. The watercolor technique requires a mastery of execution because its transparency prevents repentance. Among the Western artists who excelled in this art include JR Cozens, Peter de Wint, John Constable, David Cox, John Singer Sargent, Philip Wilson Steer, Paul Signac, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee and Paul Nash. The Royal Society of Watercolour Painters was founded in 1804.
