Making Waves: Discovering seascapes through drawings and watercolours

Tue 14 February - Sun 21 May

Fitzwilliam Museum

The sea has been a source of inspiration for artists since the 16th century when it was conceived and popularised by Dutch and Flemish painters such as Hendrick Vroom, Jan Porcellis, the Willem van de Veldes and Ludolf Backhuysen. This exhibition brings together many rarely seen drawings and watercolours from across the collection, especially the bequest of Sir Bruce Ingram, that depict tempestuous seas, naval battles, serene harbours and bustling shores with fishermen selling their catch.

Cost: Free
