This illustrated talk will describe the lives and work of Alice B Woodward and Edith Farmiloe.
These two very talented illustrators, who are featured in our current exhibition ‘Peter Pan and Other lost Children’, were contemporaries of William Heath Robinson. They have each been under-appreciated, both by the art world and by private collectors.
Alice was a highly trained and versatile artist whose capabilities were never fully exploited by the publishers on whom she relied for a living. Edith had no formal training, but had a natural talent for capturing scenes of child life in a few simple lines.
Geoffrey Beare is chairman of the Imaginative Book Illustration Society (IBIS) and edits and designs the Society’s publications. Having collected the book and magazine illustrations by each of the artists he has written their biographies and bibliographies, published by IBIS. He is curator of the current exhibition.
Geoffrey's talk starts at 7pm, with the museum galleries and shop open from 6.00pm and again after the talk until 8.30pm
