A Dark Night with Samuel Palmer

Silke Otto-Knapp, a contemporary artist whose work is included in Watercolour at Tate Britain, discusses Samuel Palmer's watercolor painting A Hilly Scene, (1826-1828). "The painting exists somewhere between the visionary aspirations of Palmer’s imagination and a realistic depiction of a familiar place."

Otto-Knapps article is taken from the article Colour Me British, a more in-depth look at works from the exhibition published in Tate Etc. magazine. Images from Watercolour were also featured in this slideshow from The Guardian.
