Nancy Ekholm Burkert: The Art of Illustration

From James and the Giant Peach (1961) and Acts of Light (1980) to Valentine & Orson (1989), Nancy Ekholm Burkert's extraordinary body of work exemplifies the fine art and meticulous art of illustration. Her masterfully-drafted and painstakingly-researched treatments of universal themes such as the search for love and respect for the natural world draw us into new magical realms. Highlights of the exhibition include the exploration of Burkert's artistic process, from preliminary drawings to her use of a rich variety of source materials.
