The Oxford English Dictionary defines Serendipity as follows.

Formed by Horace Walpole after the title of a fairytale, Three Princes of Sarendip, the heroes of which ‘were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of’;
the making of happy and unexpected discoveries by accident or when looking for something else;
such a discovery;
loosely - good luck, good fortune.

This catalogue offers a selection of prints several of which, in the course of research, turned up interesting points or connections, several of them found as a result of Googling on the internet.

Walter Greaves: Lime Wharf. Original etching
Walter Greaves: Lime Wharf. Original etching

I was fascinated, for example, to discover that Walter Greaves’ father was boatman on the Thames to J M W Turner, so that in rowing Whistler Walter was following in a family tradition.

Otherwise it is the ‘usual’ winter miscellany, including some fine portraits of artists; some nice landscapes, from early Daubigny to outstanding Pissarro, who again ornaments the front cover; and ‘British’ printmakers chronologically from Cotman through to Denyer-Baker and alphabetically from Anderson to Whistler.

In sum, some old friends, some regular acquaintances and some new discoveries, and ending in a splash of colour.
