Footnotes

  • THE COMPLETE ARTWORK BY EDWARD ARDIZZONE FOR THE TUNNEL OF HUGSY GOODE BY ELEANOR ESTES. Ardizzone enjoyed a successful collobaration with the American author Eleanor Estes (1906-1988), a winner of the Newbery Medal, illustrating five of her books, from Pinky Pie (1959) to Hugsy Goode (1972). The lively illustrations of ordinary boys and girls thrust into unlikely adventures are reminiscent of Ardizzone's work for his series of "Tim" books. One sheet is annotated with an enquiry from Eleanor, "Should we ask E.A. to do over, or would it mean almost an entire new picture? Or could we change a bit?".

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