Telling tales

While narrative painting reached the height of its popularity in Britain in the Victorian era—with large-scale compositions illustrating stories from the bible, from classical mythology, as well as scenes from daily life—visual storytelling, historically and in a contemporary context, embraces many different styles and forms as this exhibition demonstrates.
