Description: This exhibition tells how a largely self-taught artist and writer used a series of private letters to develop some of the most vividly depicted animal characters in all of children's literature. Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters brings together for the first time twenty-two letters from important American private holdings as well as from three major institutional collections: the Morgan, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton University. Illustrated with pen-drawn vignettes, the letters are displayed with more than eighty related items, including printed books, original artwork, manuscripts, and early children's toys and games inspired by Potter's stories.
