Salon Gallery

This exhibition presents a selection of original drawings for the much loved children's book illustrations by British artist Ernest Howard Shepard (1879-1976).

Shepard was the English artist behind the original illustrations for the classic children's books Winnie-the-Pooh by Alan Alexander Milne and Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham.

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) owns 29 works by Shepard, which were donated in 1981 by the artist's sister-in-law Frances Carroll, who had moved to Tasmania. She received the drawings, enclosed with other correspondence from Shepard, over several decades.

The selection of images on show includes original studies for Milne's When We Were Very Young, Now We Are Six, and The House at Pooh Corner, as well as drawings of Ratty and Moley for Wind in the Willows.

While many of the images in Winnie-the-Pooh and friends can be found in the printed books, a few also remain a valuable record of the artist's unpublished notes and drawings.
