Edward Ardizzone - Huckleberry Finn and other work

It is with great pleasure that we present our Spring exhibition featuring the work of the great artist and illustrator Edward Ardizzone.

In a somewhat unique exhibition we show the entire suite of drawing for Huckleberry Finn by Tom Sawyer, published by Heinemann Educational Books in 1961. These classic black ink drawings show Ardizzone working at his est, and the entire suite represents a formidable collection and a rare opportunity for any serious collector or institution to acquire.

Oh I soooooo wish I could be in London to see this exhibition. Edward Ardizzone's illustrations are the best.
In my copy of "Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain", there is a quote from the NY Times on the back jacket flap. It says, "My Ardizzone ...paints the wettest sea you ever saw."
And that is true.
