About The Watercolour World
The Watercolour World is a free, interactive website that will act as a unique gateway to a global collection of documentary watercolours made before 1900, in both public and private hands. Users can search either by via a map or by keyword with tens of thousands of images covering topography, botany, zoology, historic events and human activities and achievements of all kinds.
The Watercolour World is the brainchild of Fred Hohler, the British former diplomat who founded the Public Catalogue Foundation in 2002, which photographed and published over 200,000 oil paintings in public ownership in Britain for the first time. He is joined by Andra Fitzherbert as Chief Executive of The Watercolour World.
The Watercolour World is wholly funded by The Marandi Foundation, a London-based charity chaired by British entrepreneurs and philanthropists Javad and Narmina Marandi.
The Watercolour World is calling on members of the public to get in touch if they own any pre-1900 watercolours that they believe would be useful additions to the project. They can do so by contacting TWW via firstname.lastname@example.org.
