Michael Roberts donates Lear inspired illustrations

Michael Roberts, an artist from Yorkshire, got in touch with the society as he was inspired many years ago having read as he said “the quirky poetry of Lear”. In his own quirky way he has reproduced several of Lear’s best known pieces.

The illustrated one and five others have been donated to the excellent Woodborough C Of E Primary School near Pewsey, Wiltshire. The school suffered a devastating fire in 2021 and the Headmistress Sarah Brewis is delighted to have them to incorporate Lear into the curriculum as well as to decorate the new buildings.
