Quentin Blake: New Drawings 2021

Sale Total GBP 364,875

30 NOV – 14 DEC 2021

Sale Overview

The Christie’s Books & Manuscripts department presents Quentin Blake: New Drawings 2021, the latest collection of works offered directly from the artist’s studio, sold to benefit House of Illustration, Greenpeace and Downing College, Cambridge. Bidding starts at £200.

Quentin Blake said of New Drawings 2021: ‘My last auction at Christie’s was made up of alternative versions of drawings that had been commissioned from me. There are one or two such items in the present collection, but in most respects it could hardly be more different. The great majority of these came into being of their own urgency, although if you are familiar with my work you will recognise certain familiar themes, and will not be surprised to come across an elderly gentleman and a wading bird taking a stroll through a pond together’.

A selection of highlights from the sale will be on view at 8 King Street from 11-14 December.
