Our Rentrée dinner will be held in the excellent l'Entente, the "English Brasserie", centrally located at 13 rue Monsigny Paris 2ème (Métros Quatre Septembre / Opéra).

Enjoy a Pimms cocktail on arrival ; your 3-course meal includes drinks and coffee.

Fred HOHLER (Oriel) will give a talk presenting the Watercolour World Project, an ambitious digitising of paintings which represented humans' visual record before photography.

"A vast heritage of documentary images, a long-unseen gift to us from our 18th- and 19th-century forbears, exists in the global watercolour collection.

Created in colour by professionals as well as amateurs, for all its unevenness this record is an astonishingly well-observed reflection of all our pasts, all human activity and achievement.

The Watercolour World brings together, on a single website, public and private documentary watercolour collections from around the world. It is a profoundly important advance in our visual access to the past."
