Two Signed Portraits

MILNE, A.A. / SHEPARD, E.H.

MILNE, A.A. Two Signed Portraits

1920.

Two sepia toned gelatine cabinet photographs, separately depicting A.A.Milne and E.H.Shepard, both mounted and uniformly framed, the exposed dimensions are 130x95mm oval (Milne) and 142x95mm (Shepard). The framed dimensions are 370x300mm for both. Milne's portrait is signed on the mount and Shepard's has a tipped in signature to the mount. A couple of light scratches to Milne's portrait, otherwise both in fine condition.

Milne's association with Punch began in 1904, when he published his first piece for the magazine, shortly after coming down from Cambridge. He was made assistant editor in 1906 as he forged a career as a successful poet and playwright. At about the same time, E.H.Shepard, not long out of the Royal Academy, started contributing sketches and cartoons for Punch, contributing regularly as a political cartoonist through the First World War. He became a full time member of staff in 1921.
Their fabled collaboration in the Winnie the Pooh books, is down to their association through Punch, as Shepard was on hand to provide illustrations for space filling children's verse of Milne's, which was to be collected in in When We Were Very Young.

PROVENANCE: Punch Magazine, the two portaits hung in the Punch offices for several decades.
