About The Pre-Raphaelites - Drawings & Watercolours Exhibition

This major exhibition at The Ashmolean opens in spring 2021, with dates to be confirmed. It's worth bearing in mind that based on current government guidance, museums in England won't reopen until 17 May – at the earliest.

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

Explore 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.

Look at the whole range of their output across different subjects, styles and media, and how it demonstrates their individual skills, collective creativity and revolutionary thinking about art and society.

Booking for the exhibition is essential and will open when the exhibition dates are confirmed.
