PRE-RAPHAELITES: DRAWINGS & WATERCOLOURS

From a sketch on the back of an envelope to grand, elaborate chalk drawings, this exhibition offered an opportunity to view our internationally-renowned collection of Pre-Raphaelite works on paper.

We explored the enormous range of techniques and media used by the artists that made up this movement – as well as the intimate and often complex friendships and love affairs between them.
