The exhibition shows the body of works collected by Martin and Joanne Verden.

The Verden family’s ties with the Heath Robinson Museum and Pinner’s local community are longstanding, and this exhibition will highlight many of the excellent artworks in the family collection. Many of these works of art will be shown to the public for the first time.

The Verden Collection contains exceptional illustrative works by William Heath Robinson, Charles Robinson and Thomas Heath Robinson, many of which have not been exhibited before. The range is diverse, espousing William Heath Robinson’s humorous cartoons, illustrations and advertising work, including original drawings for Railway Ribaldry and his How To… series of books. The exhibition will contribute to public understanding and appreciation of the Robinson brothers’ work. Audiences will be able to see these original artworks for the first time, brought together as an exceptional collection.
