From Dallas Museum of Fine Arts:
The watercolor medium arrived rather late in France. After a glowing history in British 18th- and early 19th-century art, it crossed the Channel in the work of a bilingual English artist, Richard Bonnington, and his friends the French artists Théodore Géricault and Eugène Delacroix. Although the French artists made distinguished contributions to the medium, watercolor did not in fact become central to French painting until the 1870s, when the impressionists practiced it fervently.
