Lot 46

A delightful original ink and watercolour drawing of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet by E H Shepard, the original illustrator of AA Milne's Pooh stories. Shepard drew the piece to accompany a note to his agent, in which Shepard thanks him for his hard work. Shepard (1879-1976) was one of the leading cartoonists of the day, also creating the original illustrations of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows and several caricatures in satirical magazine Punch. The centenary of the first Winnie the Pooh book in 2026 is expected to see a surge in values for Shepard's original drawings - particular those containing the Pooh books' protagonist - as here. 12.5 cm x 16 cm.

Estimate: £30000-£36000
