Quentin Blake is one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful illustrators, having won countless awards and appointed Britain’s first Children’s Laureate. He is known by young and old alike, his name having been synonymous with his illustrations for Roald Dahl’s books. Recently Quentin has been commissioned by hospitals in the UK and abroad to produce works which have a therapeutic effect on their residents. Quentin Blake – As large as life brings together over 60 works for the first time at Compton Verney, for visitors to experience their effects for themselves.
Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to visit a specially commissioned family room decorated with examples of Quentin’s illustrations for Roald Dahl’s books and his recent designs for wallpapers produced by Osborne & Little.
Organised in collaboration with the House of Illustration.
The exhibition is running until the 11th of December 2011 at the Compton Verney.
