'Prints, Paint and Paper' exhibition to welcome visitors

'Prints, Paint and Paper' exhibition to welcome visitors

When Wisbech & Fenland Museum re-opens to the public on the 21st February, visitors will be greeted by an exhibition of prints, drawings and paintings which record the changing face of Wisbech from the 18th century and into the 20th.


Exhibition curator, Sarah Cousins, said I have really enjoyed searching the Museum’s collections for images of the historic townscape which, more often than not, has changed significantly over the years. Among those selected are several watercolours which, because of their light sensitivity, are rarely displayed.

One of my favourite pictures is Algernon Peckover’s watercolour of Thurloe’s Mansion after an original sketch taken by Elizabeth Peckover a little before it was pulled down in 1816. It is a delicately painted skilful record of one of the town’s lost architectural treasures.




The exhibition, PRINTS, PAINT & PENCIL, runs from 21 February to 23 March; 10am –, Wednesday to Saturday.

Admission charge £5.00 (annual pass) concessions available.
