Beatrix Potter in America

August 16 - December 4, 2005
Central Gallery

Featuring original book art by Beatrix potter, author and illustrator of the beloved The Tale of Peter Rabbit, this small but impressive exhibition delivers big. Works on view include preliminary drawings and studies for the book illustrations from 1902 to 1930, natural history paintings, illustrated letters, sketches, family photos, and first editions. Nearly half of these works have never been reproduced and have never been on public view.

Curated by Lolly Robinson.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by generous support from F.Warne & Co. and The Beatrix Potter Society.

This exhibition is in both Central Gallery and Reading Library
