About this event
This exhibition is the first opportunity to see a private album of drawings by the renowned equine artist Lucy Kemp-Welch. Best-known for her illustrations for the 1915 edition of Black Beauty, Lucy Kemp-Welch was meticulous in her depictions of horses. This album of drawings and studies was a gift to her cousin and has never been seen in public before. The exquisite drawings and studies show the inner working of her mind and give us a rare insight into her world.
