Ludwig Bemelmans: Sketches for Madeline

The UK's first exhibition dedicated to Bemelmans's sketches for Madeline, the classic picture book.

When, Where

This display of work by Ludwig Bemelmans – the first ever in the UK – shows his sketches for Madeline; the picture book series that has sold over 14 million copies since its publication in 1939. A raconteur on the page, Bemelmans’ rough drawings and dummy books offer an insight into how he built a classic.
