HEATH ROBINSON - MACHINES AND INVENTIONS

At West House, Pinner, Middlesex

This unique exhibition celebrates the best-known aspect of the work of Heath Robinson. His cartoons and illustrations reflect a very English response to progress, and particularly the technological developments of the early twentieth century, in both war and peace. A love of detail and a feeling for landscape provide a believable context for the most bizarre activities, and make the drawings all the more entertaining.

William Heath Robinson and his family lived in Pinner, Middlesex, for a highly productive decade, from 1908, so that this exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to see the artist's work on his home territory.

Set in Pinner Memorial Park, West House includes a gallery devoted to the work of Heath Robinson and a shop selling Heath Robinson related merchandise. However, this is the first time that West House has been able to stage a major selling show of the artist's original artwork.
