Footnotes

  • "DIANA AND HER RHINOCEROS" - THE COMPLETE ARTWORK of a classic of children's literature that Ardizzone both wrote and illustrated, "inspired by his daugher Christianna's children and her home in Richmond" (Gabriel White, Edward Ardizzone, 1979, illustrating a watercolour on pp.150-151). Published in 1964 it is in some ways a precursor in mood and theme of Judith Kerr's The Tiger that Came to Tea (1968), telling the story of the calm reaction of a young girl, Diana, when a rhinoceros appears in her suburban house, after which a beautiful lifelong relationship ensues between the two.

    Provenance: Edward Ardizzone, and by descent to present owner.
