You are invited to the exhibition preview of Southampton City Art Gallery's next major exhibition, 'The Romantic Thread in British Art'. This exhibition has been drawn from Southampton’s outstanding collection of fine art and enhanced by important loans. 

It encompasses paintings, prints and drawings from the late eighteenth century to the present day and illustrates successive Romantic movements, a strong strand in British art history, that have emerged at times of anxiety and troubled world events. These include the high Romantic era of the early nineteenth century, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Pastoral Etchers, Neo-Romantics and environmentally engaged contemporaries.  Artists represented in this exhibition include William Holman Hunt, JMW Turner, Paul Nash, John Piper, Graham Sutherland, Keith Vaughan and Christopher Le Brun. 

Admission is free but RSVP is essential - please email art.gallery@southampton.gov.uk or call 023 8083 4536  to reserve your place.
