Best known for his drawings for Winnie the Pooh and The Wind in the Willows, as well as his regular work for Punch magazine, E.H. Shepard also produced a substantial body of work while serving as an officer in the Royal Artillery in the First World War.

This exhibition is the first to explore Shepard’s illustrations drawn in the trenches on the Western Front and in Italy, and includes over a hundred original artworks – many never seen before.
