One of my favourite contemporary illustrators, Michael Foreman, is the subject of a major retrospective selling exhibition at Chris Beetles Gallery, London.  

Telling Tales will be on show from 5-22 April and features Foreman's radiant artwork for some of the greatest classics of childhood: Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Wendy, A Child's Garden of Verse, The Wizard of Oz, a pre-Quentin Blake interpretation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and examples of the artist's illustrations for books by Terry Jones.

The hallmarks of Foreman's work are a quality of dynamic energy, a singularity of perspective and his skill at creating enchanting visions of the fantastic with a subtlety of line and a colour palette of transcendent luminosity...

The exhibition is accompanied by a fabulous, 140-page, illustrated catalogue (£15 + p&p) containing over 260 full-colour reproductions.

Chris Beetles Gallery can be found at
8 & 10 Ryder Street, St James's, London SW1Y 6QB
Open: Monday-Saturday 10:00-17:30
