Tom Girtin was JMW Turner's friend and in his short life rivalled him as an innovator. He visited Devon in the late 1790s and again around 1800-1801, but the watercolours derived from these tours are not as well-known as they should be. This talk places them in the context of artistic tourism in Devon at the turn of the century and reflects on Girtin's contribution to the practice of watercolour. Sam Smiles is Honorary Professor, University of Exeter and Emeritus Professor, University of Plymouth.
