Edward Lear ( 1812 -1888) was much admired as a nature artist. Our collection includes ink and watercolour illustrations of birds that the artist drew for a boy staying at his hotel in Northern Italy in about 1880, which are from the V&A's drawings collection.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
