Quentin Blake: New Drawings 2021

An online fundraising auction with Christie’s – bidding now open!

When, Where

Ever wanted to get your hands on an original artwork by Quentin Blake? Now’s your chance.

We’re delighted to be working with Christie’s London again this year on Quentin Blake: New Drawings 2021, a fundraising auction to benefit House of Illustration and other charities.

Blake has been working in his home studio throughout the pandemic and this auction offers a unique opportunity to bid on a selection of his most recent work.

Quentin Blake: New Drawings 2021 includes everything from commissions to series of drawings springing entirely from Blake’s extraordinary imagination. All of them capture the celebrated artist’s inimitable style.

Proceeds from the auction will go towards the development of the new Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration.

The Centre will be a permanent home for the 40,000-strong Quentin Blake Archive and for illustration more broadly – an art form Blake has championed throughout his career – with galleries, studios and gardens for all to enjoy.
