A personal invitation to an exhibition of works of Randolph Caldecott (1846-1886); a British artist and illustrator. His work primarily consisted of book illustrations, however he was promptly and generously recognised by the Royal Academy. He was an important figue in the development of children's books illustrations during the 19th century. He illustrated novels and accounts of foreign travel, and made many humorous drawings depicting hunting and fashionable life. He also drew cartoons and sketches of the Houses of Parliament inside and out; exhibiting also his sculptures and painting at the Royal Academy.
