About the event:
Creator of unforgettable animal characters like Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, the beloved children’s book author and illustrator Beatrix Potter (1866–1943) rooted her fiction in the natural world. Childhood summers spent in Scotland and the Lake District nourished Potter’s love of nature, while her famous menagerie of pets inspired her picture letters and published tales. The exhibition brings together artwork, books, manuscripts, and artifacts from several institutions in the United Kingdom, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Trust, and the Armitt Museum and Library. Paired with the Morgan’s exceptional collection of her picture letters, this exhibition traces how Potter’s innovative blend of scientific observation and imaginative storytelling shaped some of the world’s most popular children’s books.
