Discover the quirky machinery and exquisite paintings of William Heath Robinson in Mottisfont’s latest exhibition. In the 1930s, Heath Robinson became known as “The Gadget King”, and he is still most widely remembered for his detailed drawings of eccentric, over-complicated contraptions. But he was also a talented painter.
Mottisfont’s exhibition features over 60 original pieces covering the extraordinary breadth of his work, from witty cartoons to dream-like watercolour landscapes and illustrations, including scenes from Shakespeare.
Alongside the gallery show, an interactive family trail introduces children to the delightful world of Heath Robinson.
