THE PRINTS AND DRAWINGS STUDY ROOM

The Prints and Drawings Study Room houses our fine collection of prints, drawings and watercolours, comprising more than 1,000 works and six centuries of the draughtsman’s and printmaker’s arts. There are outstanding drawings by Fra Bartolommeo, Rembrandt, Turner, Ingres, Degas and a wonderful group by the German Expressionists. The prints feature fine groups by Dürer, and Goya, Italian and Flemish Renaissance masters, 19th-century French artists, and 20th-century works, again including many German examples. Our prints and drawings can be viewed online at www.barber.org.uk/worksonpaper.html.

We show a rotating selection of works on paper in our two dedicated exhibition spaces. If you wish to view a work not currently on display, you can make an appointment to see it in the Prints and Drawings Study Room, which is equipped with viewing lecterns and a study/seminar table.

The Prints and Drawing Study Room was created with the financial support of the DCMS/Wolfson Museums Improvement Fund.
