Early nineteenth century, the Treaty of Amiens has been signed, Napoleon has been defeated, France is once again a place of beauty, and the tourists are flooding in. Being the capital city, Paris was the hub for most of France's guests, among whom included many prominent British artists. They were all inspired by the Parisian views, and the period between 1802-1840 brought about some of the most iconic scenes.

In an exhibition of seventy watercolour paintings, The Wallace Collection presents The Discovery of Paris. It features famous artists such as Richard Bonington, Joseph Turner, his friend and rival, Thomas Girtin. You will also see the works of lesser known artists, including Thomas Shotter Boys. Boys started out as an engraver, but his move to France also moved him onto watercolour paintings. You can view the paintings for free until the 15th September.
