John White at Yale
Yesterday the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven opened A New World: England’s first view of America. This exhibition displays more than 70 watercolours by the Elizabethan artist John White, who sailed with the earliest expedition to "Virginia" in 1585 and whose illustrations introduced England to the New World. I previewed this fascinating exhibition when it was first shown at the British Museum last year (CLICK). If you can't visit it, order the book from your local library.
