Watercolor World

Watercolor World has added the Scott Polar Research Institute's collection of watercolor paintings to its interactive map of watercolor paintings. Watercolor World is an interactive map and free online database of documentary watercolour paintings, all of which were painted before 1900.

The Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge owns a large collection of polar paintings by painter-explorers such as Edward Wilson and Captain Walter William May. You can now browse and view a selection of these polar paintings on Watercolor World.

Of course the Watercolor World interactive map doesn't restrict itself to polar paintings. In fact one of the great joys of Watercolor World is searching for historical watercolor paintings of locations near your own home. Using the interactive map you can search for watercolour paintings of your favorite locations. It is also possible to search Watercolour World's huge collection of digitized paintings by artist name, by art museum collection, by category or by tag.
