Drawing Suffolk Exhibition

An exhibition featuring some of Suffolk’s best loved artists. From John Constable to Harry Becker many well-known names will be represented by pencil and chalk drawings as well as a selection of watercolours.
The subjects include Willy Lott’s Cottage at East Bergholt by Constable, Waldringfield by Leonard Squirrell, Snape by Cavendish Morton and Blythburgh by Wesson. Many sketches of the Suffolk countryside and animals will appear, the most famous being a small Munnings pencil sketch of a horse balanced by an enormous picture of sheep by Harry Becker, drawn on stone for a lithograph.
This work is a very rare survivor of a limited issue of works commissioned by London Transport to be posted up on London’s Underground stations during the First World War.
