If you should be in New England before 11 March do take a trip to the Eric Carle Museum, Amherst, Ma. There are constantly changing exhibitions, talks, plays and a superb shop.
In The East Gallery Quentin Blake: The Theater of the Page November 7, 2006 - March 11, 2007
With hundreds of books to his name, Quentin Blake has become a “British Institution” and a global treasure, both for his own books and for his celebrated partnership with Roald Dahl, which began in 1978 with Blake’s illustrations for The Enormous Crocodile. Tracing the life and work of this master, The Carle’s exhibition explores many aspects of Blake’s style, process, and collaborations: from the high comedy of Mr. Magnolia and many of the Roald Dahl books, to the reflective, atmospheric mood that prevails in The Green Ship and Michael Rosen’s Sad Book. Reflecting Blake’s many artistic influences, works by HonorĂ© Daumier, George Cruickshank, and Pablo Picasso are also included.This exhibition has been generously underwritten by the Triad Foundation.
