Quentin Blake: Gifted




Immerse yourself in an exhibition that fuses artists and writers across generations and art forms, with creativity sparking creativity in turn. See an incredible gift of works from Sir Quentin Blake, read newly commissioned poetry that responds to his drawings and join the programme of live and digital events – What do you think about when you think about nothing? – all curated by children’s author and illustrator, Lauren Child CBE, who has been influenced by the genius imagination of Blake.

The 24 large-scale drawings in the show form two emotive series, Children and Dogs, and Children, Birds & Dogs, the latter made especially for The Foundling Museum and never seen before, and convey the internal emotional landscape of childhood.
