THE 18TH ANNUAL WINTER EXHIBITION represents the most comprehensive collection of modern illustration art worldwide. This unique show is now regarded as a key international event for illustration art and features over 350 original works from the very best artists from all over the world.
This exhibition is the peak of the year for ILLUSTRATIONCUPBOARD GALLERY, based in the world-famous art district of St James’s, central London. Highlights include a superb collection of drawings by the classic illustrator EH SHEPARD of Winnie the Pooh fame. These 3 original drawings (£50,000) were published in the 1927 for the classic book WHEN WE WERE SIX by AA MILNE, and another for KENNETH GRAHAME’S 1933 version of WIND IN THE WILLOWS (£30,000). These are museum-quality art and offer a serious collector a rare opportunity.
