An exhibit entitled “Ronald Searle Remembered” opens up in London today featuring more than 400 works by Ronald Searle.
It includes some of the clandestine drawings he produced as an inmate of Changi Gaol, the notorious Japanese prisoner of war camp, Punch covers, such as the one above, plus book and magazine illustrations.
St Trinian’s and Molesworth are represented, of course, alongside adverts for Lemon Hart rum and Searle’s reportage on many issues of the day. Also included are unpublished letters that provide new insights into the life of the great man.
Runs through June 9.
