Ernest H. Shepard
Stunning original pen and ink sketch by the original iconic illustrator of the Pooh books E.H. Shepard. Drawing features best friends Pooh and Piglet from the A.A.Milne Winnie-the-Pooh series, sat side by side on a bench. Signed in full ‘Ernest H. Shepard’. Mounted and framed. Drawing measures 174mm by 182mm, within frame 380mm by 385mm. A beautiful item in excellent clean bright condition, free from any foxing or creasing. Drawings by Shepard of his two most iconic characters are amongst the most desirable of his works, particularly so with a full signature as opposed to the commonly abbreviated ‘E.H.S.’. A truly exemplary example, would enhance any serious E. H. Shepard or A. A. Milne collection.
