Information and access to drawings, watercolours and prints

Canaletto, Venice: The lower reaches of the Grand Canal, c.1734, RCIN 907469 ©

Works of art on paper are easily damaged by exposure to light and cannot be placed on permanent display. They are kept in carefully controlled conditions in the Print Room at Windsor Castle.

Drawings, watercolours and prints are regularly included in exhibitions at The Queen’s Galleries in London and Edinburgh.  Loans of graphic art from the Royal Collection are frequently made to exhibitions around Britain and the world and can be seen in our Royal Collection Online Tool.

Catalogues of recent Royal Collection Trust exhibitions are available through the Royal Collection’s online shop. For catalogues of the Paper Museum of Cassiano dal Pozzo, please see the Cassiano Project website. Other Old Master drawings and the British drawings before 1901 have been published in a series of catalogues, a growing number of which are made available in our Publications section.  Specialist research visits to the Print Room are by appointment only and are subject to security clearance.
