The Norton Museum of Art present Elegant Enigmas. The Art of Edward Gorey, an exhibition on view June 7, 2012 – September 2, 2012.

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) is among the rare breed of artist whose work is as much beloved by children as it is by adults. His stories and illustrations carry an Edwardian sophistication while still able to impart the whimsy of an invented world that was all his own. The exhibition features more than 170 works by the master artist and author drawn from The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust. The exhibition includes selections from The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Unstrung Harp, The Doubtful Guest, The Gilded Bat and other well-known publications. Featured are original pen-and-ink illustrations, preparatory sketches, unpublished drawings, and ephemera.
