About

E H Shepard is world famous for defining the look of Winnie-the-Pooh and the other immortal children’s characters created by A A Milne. However, he was a wide-ranging illustrator and cartoonist. This can clearly be seen in this new exhibition, which explores his impressive output for Punch, the quintessential British comic weekly of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Shepard’s cartoons, illustrations and decorations are all well represented, and include:

·      social cartoons that gently and elegantly satirise the English way of life between the wars;

·      illustrations to poems, including those for EV Lucas’s ‘County Songs’ that delightfully conjure history and tradition;

·      political cartoons that analyse incisively and entertainingly the rise of Hitler and the resulting Second World War.
