As featured in a BBC interview with Quentin Blake on the art of illustration we were delighted to support 'The House of illustration' for a second year running. The works were exhibited prior to an auction in the Colonnade Gallery at Sotheby’s, alongside pieces from private collections by Beatrix Potter, E.H. Shepard, Edmund Dulac and Pauline Baynes which formed a special ‘Art of Illustration’ exhibition.
“John Jones have beeen generous enough to support the House of Illustration auction at Sothebys in 2010. Their frames and service are impeccable and it is partly thanks to their reputation that the illustrations sold so well.”
Claudia Zeff Deputy Chair House of Illustration
Some 28 leading contemporary illustrators donated works to the auction to benefit the House of Illustration, including Eric Carle, Raymond Briggs, Oliver Jeffers, Quentin Blake, Axel Scheffler, Sara Fanelli and Peter Brookes.
