This major exhibition will look at the central chapter of the artist’s career featuring over 100 watercolours, drawings and prints sketches setting Cotman’s Normandy studies against the background of his earlier architectural work. The exhibition will also feature a further 20 sketches by other artists including Turner, Samuel Prout and Henry Edridge who also visited Normandy. – www.dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk
