Spot The Difference
May 10, 2012 2 Comments
Buxton Museum’s recent purchase of the John Webber and William Day watercolours of Castleton has got us thinking. These two watercolours were drawn on the same day in 1789 and both show the same view but from slightly different angles. We have been playing spot the difference with them and this inspired us to put then up alongside other pictures showing similar views from different angles.
These pictures are on display on our newly repainted landing at Buxton Museum, and include 5 pictures that we have bought as part of the Enlightenment! project.
These images should give you a flavour – please excuse the poor photography!
