The Illustrators – The British Art of Illustration 1900 – 2016



Chris Beetles Gallery is once again hosting The Illustrators exhibition, the largest and most popular annual event worldwide for cartoon and illustration collectors.

While focussing this year on the twentieth century, this extravaganza presents over 500 original works for sale by over 60 artists from across three centuries, with prices ranging from £300 to £75,000.
