Pre-Raphaelites on Paper. Victorian Drawings from the Lanigan Collection will be the first exhibition opening at Leighton House Museum in 2016, presenting an exceptional, privately- assembled collection to the UK public for the first time. Featuring over 100 drawings and sketches by the Pre-Raphaelites and their contemporaries, the exhibition, organised by the National Gallery of Canada (NGC), expresses the richness and flair of British draughtsmanship during the Victorian era.

This outstanding collection, brought together over a 30-year period by Canadian Dr. Dennis T. Lanigan, comprises works by over 60 of the most prominent artists of the period, like Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Poynter and Frederic Leighton himself. Leighton is represented by five drawings including a study for Clytie, his last work, which was acquired by Leighton House in 2008. Also featured are works by Rossetti’s wife Lizzie Siddal and a study by William Morris for his only known easel painting La Belle Iseult (c.1857).

Tickets cost £10 per adult (£8 for concessions) and includes entry to the House and exhibition.
