European prints and drawings 1500-1900

Have fun exploring European prints and drawings 1500-1900 and make some art of your own.

This exhibition is a rare chance to see works on paper by some of Europe’s greatest artists, which are usually kept in storage due to their sensitivity to light. Charting some four centuries since the Renaissance, these works show the development of printmaking and drawing techniques to reveal the story of the graphic arts in Europe.

About our children’s trails

Our children’s trails are available online or as free printed booklets/sheets at the Gallery. They are designed to engage young children aged 6-12 with selected objects and images in the Gallery and our exhibitions. They present looking and interpreting, drawing and writing activities for children to do in front of the art with extension ideas for activities away from the Gallery.

Many of these suggestions can be adapted for use at home or in the classroom, even if you can’t visit or the particular artworks are not on display.
