Ronald Searle: Remembered

28 June - 31 July 2012


Following the recent, sad death of Ronald Searle, The Gallery at Munro House in association with the Chris Beetles Gallery is hosting an exhibition to celebrate the abundant talents of this very special man.

Paying tribute to one of the greatest cartoonists of the 20th Century, this exhibition traces Ronald Searle’s formidable career from his student drawings to his late book and magazine illustrations.

His most famous creations and best-loved characters, including Molesworth and Lemon Hart, reveal his unrivalled wit and fluent interpretative line.

His lesser known, but equally incisive visual reportage on political, artistic and literary issues of the day are explored and, alongside drawings and sketches are significant groups of unpublished letters providing new biographical insights into the life and loves of this remarkable man, all of which will be on display and available to buy.

The accompanying catalogue, of over 200 pages, is fully illustrated and contains newly researched essays and notes. We have a limited selection of exhibition catalogues and books available from the gallery and from the Leeds Gallery online shop.

All works in this exhibition are for sale.
