E.H. Shepard's WWI Illustrations

Starting October 9, the House of Illustration in London will present an exhibition of the World War I reportorial art of E.H. Shepard.
"Best known for his drawings for Winnie the Pooh and The Wind in the Willows, as well as his regular work for Punch magazine, E.H. Shepard also produced a substantial body of work while serving as an officer in the Royal Artillery in the First World War. This exhibition is the first to explore Shepard’s illustrations drawn in the trenches on the Western Front and in Italy, and will include over a hundred original artworks - many never seen before - including technical drawings, personal sketches and unpublished correspondence. The exhibition will accompany the publication of Shepard’s War, to be published by Michael O'Mara Books on 1 October."
The House of Illustration is at 2 Granary Square, King's Cross London N1C 4BH
Thanks, Bob H.
