Picturing Places is a new, free online resource exploring the Library’s extensive holdings of landscape imagery. 

It showcases works of art by well-known artists such as Gainsborough and Turner alongside images by a multitude of lesser-known figures, mostly drawn from the British Library's huge but little-known collections of prints and drawings.
