Located in Kingsclere, GB
Bait Store, Iceland, Watercolour by Leon Underwood, 1923 Additional information: Medium: Watercolour 43.7 x 51.1 cm 17 1/4 x 20 1/8 in Leon Underwood was a British sculptor, wood engraver, painter and writer of the twentieth century. Underwood was born 25 December 1890 in London, and studied at the Regent Street Polytechnic from 1907 to 1910, the R.C.A. from 1910 to 1913, and at the Slade School from 1919 to 1920 after undertaking war service between 1914 and 1918 during which he held the position of Captain in the R.E. Camouflage Section. Underwood was awarded a premium in the Rome Prize competition in 1920 but instead of going to Italy went to Iceland. He started his own school of drawing in 1921, and held his first one-man exhibition at the Chenil Galleries in 1922. He visited Holland in 1911, Russia in 1913, Dalmatia and Italy in 1925; he went to the United States and Canada between 1926 and 1927 during which time he published Animalia; he travelled in Mexico during 1928, studying Mayan and Aztec sculpture, and in Spain studying cave paintings. Underwood reopened his drawing school in 1931 and founded the magazine The Island, to which Henry Moore and C. R. W. Nevinson contributed. He wrote Art for Heaven's Sake in 1934, and served in Civil Defence Camouflage from 1939 to 1942. In 1945 Underwood visited West Africa and wrote several books on African...

Drawings and Watercolor Paintings

Revitalize your interiors — introduce drawings and watercolor paintings to your home to evoke emotions, stir conversation and show off your personality and elevated taste.

Drawing is often considered one of the world’s oldest art forms, with historians pointing to cave art as evidence. In fact, a cave in South Africa, home to Stone Age–era artists, houses artwork that is believed to be around 73,000 years old. It has indeed been argued that cave walls were the canvases for early watercolorists as well as for landscape painters in general, who endeavor to depict and elevate natural scenery through their works of art.

The supplies and methods used by artists and illustrators to create drawings and paintings have evolved over the years, and so too have the intentions. Artists can use their drawing and painting talents to observe and capture a moment, to explore or communicate ideas and convey or evoke emotion. No matter if an artist is working in charcoal or in watercolor and has chosen to portray the marvels of the pure human form, to create realistic depictions of animals in their natural habitats or perhaps to forge a new path that references the long history of abstract visual art, adding a drawing or watercolor painting to your living room or dining room that speaks to you will in turn speak to your guests and conjure stimulating energy in your space.

When you introduce a new piece of art into a common area of your home — a figurative painting by Italian watercolorist Mino Maccari or a colorful still life, such as a detailed botanical work by Deborah Eddy — you’re bringing in textures that can add visual weight to your interior design. You’ll also be creating a much-needed focal point that can instantly guide an eye toward a designated space, particularly in a room that sees a lot of foot traffic.

When you’re shopping for new visual art, whether it’s for your apartment or weekend house, remember to choose something that resonates. It doesn’t always need to make you happy, but you should at least enjoy its energy. On 1stDibs, browse a wide-ranging collection of drawings and watercolor paintings and find out how to arrange wall art when you’re ready to hang your new works.
