Much of Victorian art was escapist, offering a respite from the world of work and everyday concerns. Although it presented an idealised view of the world we can still often discern the underlying concerns of the age and its most deep-rooted anxieties. Drawn from our own outstanding collection of Victorian art, this exhibition looks at the themes of travel, storytelling, the antique past and nature. Many works have been recently restored and are exhibited for the first time in several decades.
