In the Reinhardt Gallery is our fascinating “Historical Exhibit”. Before the 19th Century, illustrators in children’s literature were seen as secondary to the authors. Edmund Evans, a publisher/printer in London had the foresight to advance three quality artists in the field of children’s literature later to be known as”The British Triumvirate.” These were Walter Crane, Randolph Caldecott, and Kate Greenaway. This exhibit is divided into the following segments: “Illustrators of the 19th Century”, “Stratemeyer Syndicate,” and “The Rise of the Picture Storybook.” We feature works from each member of “The British Triumvirate” in our exhibit.
