The poetry of drawing forum

In conjunction with ‘The poetry of drawing: Pre-Raphaelite designs, studies and watercolours’

This forum brings together international and local scholars to explore aspects of Pre-Raphaelitism. Speakers will address the vital role of drawing and design in the work of the Brotherhood and the subsequent reception of their work in England and Australia, in their own time and beyond.
