Beatrix Potter Drawn to Nature exhibition at the V&A

Venue: Victoria and Albert Museum London The Porter Gallery

Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature

Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature will be the first exhibition to tell the complete life story of Beatrix Potter, one of the best loved authors of Children’s fiction in the 20th Century. Realised through a major partnership with the National Trust, this playful and interactive exhibition will invite visitors of all ages to rediscover this household name and explore the breadth of Potter’s achievements and multifaceted life, from storyteller to natural scientist and conservationist.

The exhibition will showcase over 240 personal objects including rarely seen letters, manuscripts, sketches, coded diaries, family photographs, examples of commercial merchandise and personal artefacts. It will celebrate her early talent for storytelling, her business acumen and her fascination with the scientific study of the natural world, as well as her passion for sheep farming and conservation – a legacy still felt today.
