Lauren Child: The Art of Illustration
May 2 - September 8
Step inside the joyfully eclectic world of Lauren Child MBE, award-winning author, illustrator and Waterstones Children’s Laureate (2017-2019). Best loved for her fictional series, Clarice Bean and Charlie and Lola, Lauren Child’s vibrant collage illustrations and witty narratives have charmed and amused children and adults alike for nearly twenty years. This exhibition celebrates the art of Child’s illustrations and her love of pattern, colour and textiles. It features works from her original stories as well as her recent re-imaginings of fairy tales and classic bedtime stories such as Mary Poppins, Pippi Longstocking and The Princess and the Pea.
Plus: Enjoy a special family trail around the Holburne and its garden, and the city of Bath. Go in search of Charlie and Lola and their friends, and discover trinkets and animals from Lauren Child’s stories in unusual and surprising places!
