A roup of radical young British artists banded together in 1848 to form the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, with the singular aim to challenge the art of their time. 

The poetry of drawing  exhibition includes rarely seen works by the original members of the Brotherhood: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt; alongside works by their followers and associates such as John Ruskin, Edward Burne-Jones, Frederick Sandys, Simeon Solomon and William Morris.

This major exhibition includes over 140 works–drawings, sketches, watercolours, illustrations and designs for textiles and stained glass–exploring the central role played by drawing in the artists’ creative process.

This is a unique opportunity to view important works from the renowned collection of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
