An exhibition celebrating the special beauty of the Broads opens later this month.
Some of the most renowned Broadland painters from the 19th and early 20th centuries feature in Water Ways – Art and Nature on the Broads at the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth.
With renowned artists including Charles Harmony Harrison, Stephen Batchelder and Arthur Patterson, the exhibition explores the Norfolk and Suffolk waterways.
As well as these names, the exhibition will showcase work from the region's contemporary artists as well as natural history, archive sound recordings and loans from private collections.
And naturalist and wildfowler Frank Southgate will be exhibiting his work combining his naturalistic studies of birds with freely painted impressionistic backgrounds.

Photographs taken by PH Emerson and John Payne Jennings will also be on display alongside items from the Museum of the Broads.
Paul Smyth, chairman of the communities committee at Norfolk County Council, said: 'For generations, the Broads have been one of the county's most popular tourist attractions, putting Norfolk squarely on the map and making a valuable contribution to our visitor economy. This exhibition should add to that success by providing a splendid insight into how historic and contemporary artists have perceived this beautiful landscape.'
