The Heath Robinson Museum has a new exhibition entitled ‘Charles Keeping: Londoner & Illustrator’, which started on February 29 and will continue until May 31.

Charles Keeping’s life and work is celebrated in the exhibition, he was a very influential modern British book illustrator, who died in 1988. 

Mr Keeping was a Londoner in every aspect. His childhood provided him with a wide range of images to draw continuously throughout his working life.

His vision was described as ‘universal, individual and often disturbing’, in fact his work was always original and very gruesome.

Certain people believe that the strength and honesty he put in all his work changed the face of British children’s book illustration.

Lucy Smith, manager at the Heath Robinson Museum said: “The exhibition had a good opening on the weekend, people are enjoying it and they said it’s very interesting. We had a good turnout so far.”

Visitors can see the exhibition at the museum in Pinner Memorial Park from 11am to 4pm, Thursday to Sunday and Bank Holidays.
