Our exhibition Pre-Raphaelite Treasures: Drawings and Watercolours (March - June 2022) featured highlights from the Ashmolean Museum’s internationally-renowned collection of Pre-Raphaelite drawings and watercolours, alongside a selection of works from George Frederic Watts.

Artists of the Pre-Raphaelite movement came from a wide range of artistic backgrounds and created drawings in a variety of styles and techniques over the course of their careers. However, these treasures are rarely publicly exhibited owing to their delicacy and sensitivity to light exposure.

Learn more about the exhibition on this tour with our Curator, Dr Emily Burns. Emily takes you through the various themes in the exhibition and highlights some of the artworks we have on display.
