Special Exhibition at Heath Robinson Museum

HEATH ROBINSON MUSEUM on now
Charles Keeping
The current special exhibition is entitled ‘Charles Keeping: Londoner & Illustrator’ and runs from 29 February until 31 May. Charles Keeping, one of the most influential of modern British book illustrators, died in 1988.
This exhibition celebrates his life and work.
Charles Keeping was a Londoner through and through, and his childhood in Lambeth provided him with an endlessly rich stock of images to draw on throughout his working life. But his vision was universal, individual and often disturbing. It has been argued that the strength and honesty of everything he undertook changed the face of British children’s book illustration. His work was highly original and often had a strong element of the macabre. The exhibition confirms Charles Keeping’s stature and contribution not just as a major picture-book
artist but also as a revelatory illustrator of Dickens for the Folio
Society.
He was one of the true greats, and an exhibition to honour
him is long overdue.
The Museum, in Pinner Memorial Park, is open from 11am to 4pm,
Thursday to Sunday and Bank Holidays.
