Label

Frederick Barnard created illustrations on behalf of the publishers Chapman & Hall, who produced the Household Edition of Charles Dickens's novels. Barnard was influenced by the work of Hablot Knight Browne (known by his pen name Phiz) and created a large number of illustrations but had the advantage of being able to study the entire novels rather than having to produce illustrations on a weekly basis as the parts were being written. This sepia wash drawing depicts Little Nell and her grandfather from Dickens's novel, 'The Old Curiosity Shop'.
