Feb 20-Jun 9. Presenting 35 master drawings and prints depicting stories and figures of the Hebrew Bible, from Adam and Eve to David and Goliath. These are stories that lie at the heart of three world religions and are the link between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. See some of the most outstanding works on paper from the college's collection, including one of the rarest and most exquisite old master drawings in existence - The Meeting of Jacob and Rachel, by the Flemish artist Hugo van der Goes (1437-82). This large composition depicts one of the most important love stories of the Old Testament - symbolising the origins of the 12 tribes of Israel. Other artists include Dürer, Hans Sebald Beham, Hans Speeckaert and Heinrich Aldegrever, as well as Camillo Procaccini and Angelo Bronzino.
Open Mon, Wed-Sat 10.30am-1pm, and Mon-Wed-Sun 2-4.30pm.
