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.
