Mary V. Wheelhouse: Suffragette, Illustrator and Toymaker
Heath Robinson Museum, Pinner
On until 24 March 2024

Wheelhouse is an artist who, in spite of her significant contributions to the history of British art, has perhaps never received the recognition she deserves. Despite a career illustrating books, crafting toys for Liberty’s and Harrods, and promoting the work of her fellow women artists, until now, Wheelhouse’s work has never been shown in a solo exhibition.
