Explore art's opinion of the witch through this collection of drawing and etchings from the last 500 years.

The British Museum have brought together their most darkly magical exhibits (and borrowed a few from the V&A, Tate Britain, British Library and the Ashmolean in Oxford) for this collection representing the portrayal of the witch and witchcraft in art over the last 500 years. Prints and drawings depicting devils, beasts and broomsticks chart the witch's progression from possessed monster to exotic sirens, and several classical Greek vases will be included to highlight our longstanding fascination with the subject.

This exhibition was utter rubbish - save your trip to the museum  and just buy the book - far better value if you bear in mind that the art on show has little to do with witches and more to do with the imagination of the artists portrayed. The exhibition is so bad it's not worth a star rating, but one has to be given to be able to post a review...
