Showcasing the Ashmolean's collection of British drawings and watercolours, which is one of the largest and most important in the world.

More than 100 works – many of which are shown for the first time in public – trace the history of drawing in Britain. They range from examples by Flemish artists working in Britain in the 16th and 17th centuries, to British artists' experiments in modernism after the First World War.

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