the Circle was founded on the initiative of the teacher of the Drawing school Society for the encouragement of artists E. C. Villiers de l'isle-Адана for the device of watercolor exhibitions. In 1887 he received the official status of the Society of Russian watercolors, which were intended to "contribute to the success and development of watercolor painting in Russia."

From the 1880s, the Society annually organized exhibitions that took place in the premises of the Society for the encouragement of artists, from 1896 — in the halls of IAH and the Passage.

In 1880-90-х exhibitions dominated the work of academic areas associated with the aesthetics of landscape watercolors. In the early 1900-х watercolor shows became more variety: for them there were works in the art Nouveau style, "neo-Russian style".
