Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature

Beatrix Potter. Variant artwork for The Tale of Peter Rabbit, 1902–7. Watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil on paper; 5 6/8 x 3 7/8 in. V&A: Linder Bequest, BP.468. © Victoria and Albert Museum, London, courtesy of Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd.

This magical, family-friendly exhibition celebrates the creative and ecological achievements of the beloved English author and illustrator Beatrix Potter (1866–1943). In The Tale of Peter Rabbit, first published in London in 1901, and twenty-two other children’s books, Potter imagined an enchanting world of animals and gardens.

Through diaries, letters, photographs, sketches, watercolors, and other materials, this exhibition explores how Potter developed her stories and characters. It also reveals that Potter’s books were just one manifestation of her love of nature—she engaged in scientific studies, farming, and land conservation as well. Drawn to Nature shows all these facets of Potter’s remarkable life and legacy in vibrant detail.
