British drawings and watercolors: a selection from the j. f. mccrindle collection - Royal Institute of British Architects



The British Museum Reading Room , situated in the centre of the Great Court of the British Museum , used to be the main reading room of the British Library . In 1997, this function moved to the new British Library building at St Pancras, London , but the Reading Room remains in its original form at the British Museum.

Designed by Sydney Smirke and opened in 1857, the Reading Room was in continual use until its temporary closure for renovation in 1997. It was reopened in 2000, and from 2007 to 2014 it was used to stage temporary exhibitions. It has since been closed while its future use remains under discussion.

The Reading Room was officially opened on 2 May 1857 with a 'breakfast' (that included champagne & ice cream) laid out on the catalogue desks. A public viewing was held between 8 and 16 May which attracted over 62,000 visitors. Tickets to it included a plan of the library. [1] [2]

The sheer number and vulnerable nature of drawings, watercolours and prints in Tate’s collection means that only a small selection can be shown in the galleries at any one time. Visitors are however welcome to look at works on paper whether for pleasure or academic study, in the Prints and Drawings Rooms.

The Prints and Drawings Room holdings range from from sketchbooks and watercolours by visionary nineteenth century artist J.M.W. Turner , to modern and contemporary prints and drawings by leading international artists.

To find out which artworks are available to see in the Prints and Drawings Room visit Art & Artists and look out for artworks flagged with 'view by appointment'.
