KIng’s Lynn Museum’s tiger sketch
In our fortnightly Picture This column, staff at Lynn Museum show a sketch of a popular tiger...
Here we have a sketch of a tiger by local artist Henry Baines, dated 1859.
Regular visitors to Lynn Museum will know of the much-loved taxidermy tiger, known as ‘Horace’, displayed in the reception area. Recently Horace has made a new friend as the latest exhibition is inspired by the children’s book ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr.
The exhibition commemorates the centenary of Kerr’s birth and celebrates her incredible contribution to children’s literature. Featured are high-quality facsimiles of Kerr’s original illustrations and children (and grown ups!) will enjoy stepping into a recreation of Sophie’s kitchen to have tea with the famous furry guest.
The exhibition runs until 20.
