THE ILLUSTRATORS 2016

THE BRITISH ART OF ILLUSTRATION 1900-2016

Chris Beetles Gallery welcomes you to The Illustrators, the largest and most popular annual event worldwide for cartoon and illustration collectors. While focussing this year on the twentieth century, this extravaganza presents over 500 original works for sale by over 60 artists from across three centuries, with prices ranging from £300 to £75,000.

The exhibition celebrates the wealth of talent among illustrators of the twentieth century, from the influential Edwardian black-and-white draughtsman, E J Sullivan, to unique contemporary talent that is Sara Midda. British artists are shown within the context of the European and American traditions of cartooning and illustrating, as exemplified by such exceptional talents as André François and Al Hirschfeld.
