Edward Lear: The New Zealand Exhibition

As announced a few days ago in The Dominion Post, an exhibition of the Edward Lear material in New Zealand has opened at the Expressions Arts and Entertainment Centre in Upper Hutt.


A long interview with Edward Lear’s descendant, Dr. Peter Gillies, from Radio New Zealand’s website, reveals that most of the material in the exhibition has appeared on this blog: Lear family portraits and Edward’s personal possession. However, Dr. Gillies also mentions “original limericks” and “15 letters to Holman Hunt” containing self-caricatures.
