Sublime Ambition: The Gothic in Literature and Art

For centuries, Gothic art and literature have captured the imaginations of millions and influenced every field of culture, from architecture and music to drama, film and fashion. In January 2016 The Portico hosted original props and artefacts from Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride alongside works by contemporary artists Julianne French, Marion Kuit and Jonathan Hargreaves with fascinating rare books and prints from our collection.
