Some Book! Some Art!: Selected Drawings by Garth Williams for Charlotte’s Web

December 11, 2012 - April 22, 2013
Central Gallery

Charlotte’s Web, by acclaimed author E. B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams, is one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century children’s literature. White’s elegant prose and Williams’s exquisite drawings form a spirited dialogue of substance and style. To celebrate our purchase of a key group of drawings from the book, as well as Williams’s 100th birthday, the 60th anniversary of Charlotte’s Web, and the Museum’s 10th year, The Carle has assembled an exhibition comprising 30 finished drawings, as well as a selection of preliminary sketches. 

Support for this exhibition was generously provided by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
