Room 90: Prints & Drawings

Prints & Drawings, room 90

The Julie and Robert Breckman Gallery

This room contains changing displays of prints and drawings. A recent display, ‘Off the Page’, showcased book illustration from famous and much loved books selected from the Museum's collection of original drawings and prints by artists from Durer to Dulac. The inaugural display in this room, ‘A Spirit of Place’, celebrated the lively continuity of the landscape tradition in British printmaking. The prints which had all been made during the last 100 years were chosen from the Museum’s collections in the Word and Image department. They include recent acquisitions made with the generous support of the Julie and Robert Breckman Print Fund.

Room 90 is on Level 3 of the V&A South Kensington.
