Angela Barrett's Night Before Christmas and other new work
Dr Jeykll and Mr Hyde, Anna Karenina,
& The Night Before Christmas

24 OCTOBER – 10 NOVEMBER 2012


Illustrationcupboard Gallery in central London is delighted to present a highlight of our autumn season – an exhibition of newly-released original artwork by the much-loved and respected ANGELA BARRETT. One of the leading illustrators in the world today Angela Barrett has exhibited her work across the globe with numerous single-artist exhibitions in Asia and the US. Her work is greatly sought after by museums and collectors as befits her status as a multi-award winning British artist.

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a lavished and long-awaited publication by Orchard Books. A sumptuous version of this seasonal classic sees Angela Barrett at her very best, with strong rich colour and virtuoso draughtsmanship. It is a book without parallel and is sure to be one of the Christmas best-sellers for 2012.

THE CURIOUS TALE OF DR JEYKLL AND MR HYDE was a labour of love, and shows Angela Barrett most atmospheric, with finely detailed, brooding artwork that complements this murky tale. Produced for the hugely respected Hand and Eye Press, only two hundred books have been printed – a must for all serious collectors.

ANNA KARENINA This literary classic by Tolstoy is aptly suited to Angela Barrett’s flair and panache at richly adorned nineteenth century life. Published by The Folio Society, this superb edition and its corresponding artwork are amongst some of the finest illustrative work being produced today.

This collection of recently released artwork by Angela Barrett will be on show at the gallery from the 24th October to the 10th November.

All artwork is for sale. Prices start at £250. There will be a book launch and evening reception on Wednesday 31 October, and Angela Barrett will be in attendance to sign books and meet and greet visitors from 5.30pm. We regret that Angela will only be able to sign books purchased at the gallery.
Original artwork from £250, signed limited and first editions books from £10.99. Entrance is free and families most welcome.
