Free entry  


Discover the captivating drawings and beautiful watercolours of Victorian artist Edward Burne-Jones. 

The exhibition is a rare opportunity to see 25 works from the National Museums Liverpool collections too delicate for permanent display. Including the stunning Sponsa de Libano, which stands at more than 3 metres tall, on display for the first time in almost two decades.

Independent drawings, preparatory studies and designs for stained glass, give a unique insight into a Pre-Raphaelite master exploring his ideas and techniques through drawings.
