Drawing in the Archive: Norwich’s Medieval Churches 1700 – 2017
Based on new research, this exhibition explores the rich visual record of Norwich’s medieval parish churches. Since 1700, artists, antiquarians and archaeologists have drawn the City’s churches in diverse ways. The remarkable archive that they have left reveals information about the churches that would otherwise be lost and encourages us to look again, and look differently, at these familiar landmarks.Monday 21 August – Friday 17 November 2017
