There will be forty plus original works by some of the leading illustrators from Britain, America and Europe, including René Bouché, René Gruau, Dior and Barbara Hulanicki. Prices will range from £300 to £3,000. These really are delightful original works and the artists are sadly rather under-recognised; a fact which fortunately this exhibition seeks to put right. They are wonderful things to live with in your own homes as they conjure up style, glamour and period and suit all types of interior.
