Описание: At the Royal Academy exhibition of 1794, Paul Sandby (1725-1809) exhibited his newly painted "A View of Vinters at Boxley, Kent, with Mr Whatman's Turkey
Paper Mills". Sandby, one of the founding members of the Royal Academy and one of the preeminent British landscape painters of the day, included the celebrated Whatman
papermaking mill at the centre of this landscape composition. James Whatman I and his son, James Whatman II, were the most famous English papermakers of the eighteenth century,
and by 1760, Turkey Mill was the largest paper mill in the country.
This handsome and engaging book looks at how the "View of Vinters and Turkey Mill" is both a superb
example of Sandby's art and an important document of the rise of industry in the British countryside and of the intertwined developments of papermaking and the art of painting in
watercolour. It also features other watercolours by Sandby and materials relating to the processes of papermaking and to the Whatman family and its mill.
