Extract: This major exhibition is the largest survey of Pre-Raphaelite drawings and watercolours ever staged. It displays works from Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery's world-class collections alongside key loans from public and private lenders, including important drawings by D.G. Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and Edward Burne-Jones that have never previously been exhibited.
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of radical young artists who banded together in London in 1848, revolutionised British art. The Poetry of Drawing includes works by all the leading figures of the movement, including the original Brotherhood, their mentor John Ruskin, Elizabeth Siddal, and the 'second generation' of Pre-Raphaelites including Edward Burne-Jones, Frederick Sandys and Simeon Solomon.
