Accounts reveal the wonderful achievements of such masters as the great Chinese watercolorists, European artists like Albrech Dürer, J.M.W. Turner, and Pablo Picasso; illustrators of the caliber of Arthur Rackham and Kate Greenway; and American painters such as Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and Andrew Wyeth.".
