On Saturday August 29th a new exhibition opened for five weeks in West House’s Heath Robinson Gallery. It showcases the second selection of works from the Simon Heneage Collection, which the William Heath Robinson Trust has recently acquired with the support of the National Heritage Memorial Fund and the Art Fund.
This exhibition includes more humorous drawings from the inter-war years, together with four of the beautiful watercolours that Heath Robinson painted for his own pleasure. The twelve humorous drawings include two classic jokes in which he tells a story in multiple scenes, ‘The Sweep Ticket’ and ‘The Man Who Couldn’t Afford to Go to the Academy’.
The exhibition is open free of charge, thanks to our wonderful team of volunteer stewards, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 1-5pm. Cards, gifts and books on Heath Robinson and Pinner are on sale. The entrance is through the Daisy’s in the Park café.
