An exhibition by Suffolk artist Maggi Hambling goes on show at the British Museum next month, focussing on her drawings, including several exclusive works.

The exhibition, titled Touch: works on paper, takes its name from the “deep connection between the subject being drawn, whose true essence is captured” through the work.

Hambling, described as one of Britain’s “foremost figurative artists”, is perhaps best known for her Scallop on Aldeburgh beach.

The exhibition, which runs September 8-January 29, will feature early student drawings through to works created especially for the show.
