A small exhibition devoted to Edward Lear has recently opened at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames; here is the descrption on the museum website:
Edward Lear: Travel and Nonsense
15 Oct – 10 Jan
From extraordinary sketches of landscapes and nature, to the nonsense drawings and verses for which Lear is so well known, the exhibition presents around 30 framed works alongside manuscripts and original book publications.The exhibition is coming from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, home of the largest and most comprehensive collection of Lear’s work in the UK, with important loans from private collections, which are rarely on public display.
The Exhibition is organised by the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.
