Appearing for the first time in the Quentin Blake Gallery at House of Illustration, Linda Kitson’s line drawings have recorded seminal moments in British history.

This exhibition charts a lifetime of putting pen to paper including her drawings of the 1982 Falklands War, as the first female artist commissioned to accompany troops into combat. The reportage works on show lead up to her most recent, innovative ventures on the iPad.

The exhibition is curated by Quentin Blake, who has known Kitson since she was first a student at the Royal College of Art.   A full catalogue, with notes also by Quentin, is available to buy from the House of Illustration shop, price £12.99.
