The Lamb Gallery reopens with an exhibition of drawings from the University's extensive collections.

Drawing is often seen as the fundamental basis of art, as well as being an important tool in other forms of creative thinking. This exhibition presents highlights from the University’s wide-ranging collection of around 2,000 drawings. It includes rarely seen work by many renowned artists including Thomas Gainsborough, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, WQ Orchardson, David Foggie, James McIntosh Patrick, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, John Johnstone, Joe McIntyre, David Mach, Will Maclean, Stephen Sutcliffe, Annie Cattrell and many others.

Works are grouped into several themes including portraits and figure studies, life drawing (from the nude model), drawings for sculptures, still life and topographical drawings, scientific drawing and art inspired by science, illustration, design and comics.
