Edward Lear Exhibition, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, UK
Edward Lear Exhibition, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, UK

The bicentenary of the birth of Edward Lear is being celebrated with events and exhibitions throughout the English-speaking world. As the home of the largest and most comprehensive collection of his work in the UK, the Ashmolean is mounting a retrospective exhibition covering all aspects of his career. From early natural history illustrations and extraordinary landscape sketches, to the nonsense drawings and verses for which Lear is so well known, the exhibition presents 100 works of art from the Ashmolean’s own Lear collection and important loans from the Bodleian Library and works from private collections, many of which will go on public display for the first time.
