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.
