Great British Drawings
Ashmolean Museum
Beaumont Street, Oxford Oxfordshire OX1 2PH, Oxford, United Kingdom

The collection of British drawings and watercolours in the Ashmolean is one of the largest and most important in the world. Great British Drawings shows more than one hundred works by some of the country’s greatest artists, to trace the history of drawing in Britain. Many of the drawings are shown for the first time in public.

The collection in the Ashmolean ranges widely, from Flemish artists working in Britain in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to the experiments in modernism instigated on the Continent and enthusiastically taken up by the British after the First World War.

Among those featured are JMW Turner, Rossetti, Millais, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson and LS Lowry.
