David Cox at the Yale Center for British Art
The Yale Center for British Art is hosting a fabulous showing of the work of David Cox, with a few examples of his son's work included. Located in New Haven, CT, the exhibition closes January 4, 2009. This is an outstanding chance to see a remarkable collection of the work of one of England's premier watercolorists. Several drawings, some preparatory works for watercolors, are featured. David Cox published a primer on drawing in the early 19th century, one of the original "how to" books. His drawings are phenomenal; his watercolors have such freshness and vigor. What a rare treat to see them up close!
