Enjoy an exclusive friends-only first look at the new temporary exhibition - 'Brothers in Art: Drawings by Watts and Leighton'

Friends for 40 years, G.F. Watts and Frederic Leighton enjoyed one of the Victorian era's longest and most productive artistic partnerships. Although both men were celebrated painters. drawing was the skill they most admired in one another. Masterful, personal and beautiful, their drawings are imaginative records of their artistic ideals and reveal the pair's extraordinary technical ability. Showcasing some of the artists' never-before-seen masterpieces, this exhibition will bring Watts's and Leighton's finest drawings together for the first time.
The afternoon includes refreshments and an expert-led talk, discussing the process of researching developing the latest exhibition.
