A NEW exhibition will be on display showcasing some of the original works by Pinner legend, William Heath Robinson.
The West House and Heath Robinson Museum Trust is hosting the exhibition put on by the Chris Beetles Gallery and trust members are encouraging art lovers to pay a visit.
Entitled ‘The Age of William Heath Robinson 1872-1944’, the exhibition will display original works by Heath Robinson and his contemporaries at the gallery in West House, Pinner Memorial Park, from April 22 to May 4.
Cynthia Wells, from Pinner Association and a West House Trustee, said: “This is a great opportunity to see works by internationally famous artists which would otherwise be on show only in central London and which, after the exhibition, are likely to disappear into private ownership.
“Entry is free and we hope that people will take advantage of this and enjoy visiting West House, which is fully accessible, in the beautiful Pinner Memorial Park.
“The West House trustees are delighted to be bringing this exhibition to the London Borough of Harrow.”
Visitors will be given to opportunity to buy any of the works.
An eccentric illustrator, cartoonist and Pinner man, William Heath Robinson’s work was among the most individual and recognisable of his age.
It also influenced and reflected that of his contemporaries, especially fellow members of the London Sketch Club.
William Heath Robinson did some of his most celebrated work while living in Pinner from 1908 to 1918 and a blue plaque marks the house in which he lived in Moss Lane.
The Chris Beetles gallery is in St James’s, central London, and specialises in over two centuries of English art.
