Beauty's Awakening

Encompassing the entire Victorian era, this beautiful exhibition catalogue charts the broad evolution of British draftsmanship and illustrates the new appreciation developed for the art of drawing during the reign of Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901.

It highlights the work of Pre-Raphaelite geniuses, Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, as well as that of academic champions Edward Poynter and Frederic Leighton. From preparatory sketches to highly finished drawings intended as works of art in and of themselves, Beauty’s Awakening expresses the richness, diversity and flair of Victorian draftsmanship as seen through the eyes of a discerning collector.
