Adela Breton: Travels with a Paintbrush

Adela Breton: Travels with a Paintbrush

In 1887 Adela Breton set off from her Bath home, eager to see the world after spending decades as the dutiful daughter nursing aging parents. Over the next 25 years Breton explored the world and became an expert on Mexican archaeology. She documented her travels around Europe, the Americas and Japan in a series of watercolours. 

After her death these were donated to the Gallery. The highlights of the collection will be displayed in this exhibition, documenting the life and travels of this most fascinating woman.
