In an exploration of the celebrated Victorian poet's significant connection with visual art, Christina Rossetti: Vision & Verse will bring together paintings, illustrations, works on paper and photography.
Presenting portraits of the poet and highlights of the many visual images inspired by her words - alongside Rossetti's own intriguing and virtually unknown drawings - this exhibition will consider Christina Rossetti's complex attitude to visual art, recognising the enduring appeal of Rossetti's verse to visual artists from the 1850s through to the present day.
