The charm of animals long predates the cat video and they have been subject of many old master drawings. From observation, artists rendered lions, horses, dogs and many more and created imaginary beasts from descriptions. Over thirty drawings with a variety of approaches will be on show, culminating in an in-focus display of our two drawings by the pioneering British animal artist Francis Barlow (c. 1624-1704).
