British Drawings

The focus for this research group is the study of British drawings, defined in the broadest terms of medium and chronology. It aims to stimulate discussion and foster productive collaborations between curators, academics, researchers and practitioners in this field and to develop this growing area of research and scholarship within UK museums, galleries and universities.

Previous workshops have taken place at Tate Britain, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the National Galleries of Scotland. These events focused on themes including sketchbooks, watercolours and the role of drawing in art education, exploring strategies of research, interpretation and access.

The group is led by Annette Wickham (Curator of Works on Paper, Royal Academy of Arts).
