In the collections of the V&A, among ceramics, glass, textiles, costumes, silver, ironwork, jewellery, furniture and sculpture, you can find Shepard’s original drawings of Winnie the Pooh, the most adored fiction character of all time.
No doubt these delicate drawings deserve to be on display in a museum: in 2014 one of the most famous images of Winnie the Pooh was sold for £314,500 at Sotheby’s, three times its estimate!
English author A.A. Milne (who passed away on 31st January 1956) named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin.
