Elegant Enigmas – The Art of Edward Gorey

An exhibition of work by beloved American artist and writer Edward Gorey. Gorey is known for his charming but somewhat creepy and unsettling illustrated stories such as The Doubtful Guest and The Ghastlycrumb Tinies. He kept a distinct and delicate drawing style throughout his career from the 1950s until his death in 2000. The artist’s dark yet charming legacy continues to inspire and excite admirers around the world, with directors Tim Burton and Mark Romanek amongst his more famous fans. This touring exhibition finally lands in Japan featuring around 350 pieces including original artwork and books.
