Huntington Art Gallery, Second Floor

In an age of great drawing, Anglo-Swiss painter Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) and his circle in Britain helped to push the medium into new areas of expressiveness, invention, and boldness of conception. This small exhibition consists of about 30 works from The Huntington's exceptional holdings of drawings and watercolors by Fuseli, William Blake, and the artists most closely associated with them, including George Romney, John Flaxman, Joseph Wright of Derby, James Barry, John Brown, and Richard Cosway. It complements the installation of The Huntington's newly acquired painting by Fuseli, The Three Witches.
