深受喜愛的兒童書籍插圖在朗格萊特展出

小熊維尼和《愛麗絲夢遊仙境》中的模擬烏龜是威爾特郡朗利特宮展覽的一部分,將持續到1月8日。

七位藝術家的作品將展出從19世紀60年代到60年代的一系列插圖。

"策展人James Ford說:"這個小型展覽提供了一個難得的機會,可以看到Longleat收藏品中不為人知的一個重要部分。

這個展覽名為Picture This。為孩子們的故事畫插圖,目的是為了慶祝兒童書籍,原畫將與它們出現在出版的書籍一起展出。

"福特先生說:"由於第六代侯爵夫人對兒童文學的熱情,我們很幸運地擁有一些有史以來最重要的藝術家為兒童書籍繪製的重要作品。

"他補充說:"我們希望客人們喜歡看到為《愛麗絲夢遊仙境》和《小熊維尼》等兒童經典作品帶來活力的插圖。

約翰-坦尼爾於1866年為劉易斯-卡羅爾的小說《愛麗絲夢遊仙境》創作的一幅模擬烏龜的圖畫,是展出的作品中最早的。

參觀者可以看到克里斯托弗-羅賓、小熊維尼和小豬的插圖,這是E.H. Shepard於1927年為A.A. Milne的《Now we are Six》創作的。

克萊恩先生在1882年為他六歲的兒子萊昂內爾(Lionel)創作的一本鮮為人知的Longleat黑皮書的56幅水彩畫,將在展覽中首次展出。


Winnie the Pooh and the mock turtle from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland are part of exhibition at Longleat House in Wiltshire until 8 January.

The work of seven artists will be on show with a range of illustrations dating from the 1860s to the 1960s.

"This small exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see an important part of the Longleat Collection that isn't very well known," curator James Ford said.

The exhibition, called Picture This: Illustrating Stories for Children, aims to celebrate children's books, and original drawings will be placed alongside the published books they appear in.

"Thanks to the 6th Marquess' passion for children's literature, we're lucky to have significant works by some of the most important artists ever to illustrate children's books," said Mr Ford.

"We hope guests enjoy seeing illustrations that brought to life children's classics such as Alice in Wonderland and Winnie the Pooh," he added.

A drawing of the mock turtle, created in 1866 by John Tenniel for Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is the earliest of the works on display.

Visitors can view an illustration of Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, created by E.H. Shepard in 1927 for A.A. Milne's Now we are Six.

Mr Crane's little-known Longleat black book of 56 watercolours, which he created for his six-year-old son Lionel in 1882, will be on display for the first time in the exhibition.
