of Water-Colour Drawings, Pall Mall East. - The insufficiency of space for the
exhibition of water-colour drawings at the Royal Academy, led to the formation
of this establishment, which annually opens in May, and is justly esteemed one
of the most beautiful exhibitions of which the metropolis can boast.
The last exhibition of the Society, from the increased number of excellent pictures produced, gave proof of a rapid advancement in this branch of the arts.
