ARTWORK by Peter Campbell

‘A sick boy having breakfast in bed; a dog in a pram; the inside of a kitchen cupboard; a clothes rail with one lonely frock; a fox passing the (dying) artist’s home – all images from the world and work of Peter Campbell, genial, domestic and affectionate and which, collected here for the first time, make him an heir to Ardizzone, Bawden and Ravilious.’

– Alan Bennett
