So jealous.

According to the Southwark News, the Dulwich Picture Gallery will be showing the first major UK retrospective of work by Tove Jansson, creator of the Moomin books. While she is regarded as one of the most iconic illustrators of the 20th century, Jansson's non-Moomin-work is rarely shown outside of Finland. This exhibit will collect 150 works that:
"...reintroduce Jansson as an artist of exceptional breadth and talent, tracing the key stages of her prolific career, including her surrealist-inspired paintings of the 1930s and abstract work of the ‘60s, her satirical anti-war cartoons and book jacket designs, as well as a comprehensive display of early sketches for the Moomin characters and original comic strips."
I wish I could see it. My beloved "Little My" tea towel is not quite the same.
