This ticket also gives entry to the Saturday morning Talk:

SPEAKER - Jenny Uglow

When: Saturday 3 February - 11.30am
Where: Ondaatje Theatre in the Works on Paper Fair

Edward Lear (1812-1888) carried a sketchbook with him all his adult life, leaving thousands of drawings, sketches, watercolours and lithographs. Jenny Uglow explores his exuberant genius – as a natural history artist, a landscapist and a creator of unforgettable nonsense. Lovable and lonely, Lear’s ‘works of paper’ from the Owl and the Pussycat, and the Dog with a luminous nose, to botanical specimens like ‘Manypeeplia upsidownia’ and the defiant, eccentric limericks, belong to their time and still delight us today.

Jenny Uglow is is an author, critic, historian, editor and consultant. Mr Lear: A Life of Art and Nonsense is her most recent book, published in October 2017. She is particularly interested in the relation of text, idea and image. Her books in this field include award-winning biographies of William Hogarth and Thomas William Bewick, as well as a study of Sarah Losh, a surprising Victorian architect and visionary, and the short Words and Pictures: A Peculiarly British Tradition.

The talk will last approximately 1 hour
