Edward Lear Signature

Edward Lear - Wildlife Artist and Polymath

open throughout the Festival, in the Upstairs Gallery, 1.30 - 7.00pm
FREE ENTRY, but donations to the World Land Trust welcome.

The Halesworth Arts Festival, in conjunction with the World Land Trust presents a new exhibition on the works of 19th Century artist and poet Edward Lear.

Perhaps best known for his nonsense poetry, Lear was a gifted artist and often drew from life inspired by the exotic collections of wildlife at London Zoo.

His works are a celebration of the natural world and this exhibition will include original paintings from private collections, as well as works from artists influenced by Lear’s unique style.

The exhibition will include some prints (original and modern) for sale in aid of the World Land Trust.
