"It shows a superb side to Blake that we had no idea existed." Londonist
Portrayal of the body and gesture is the foundation of Quentin Blake's genius as an illustrator. His lifelong, private practice as a figurative artist has run alongside his world-famous work but has, until now, remained hidden.
The exhibition features large-scale pieces created between 1950-2000, never seen before. This remarkable body of work reveals Blake's experimentation with materials, a more sculptural treatment of form and sensuous use of broad strokes.
The exhibition is accompanied by a book published by Tate in association with House of Illustration.
