Organized by the Bradywine River Museum, of Chadds Ford, PA, Elegant Enigmas opens at the Orlando Museum of Art on August 13, 2010.

About the exhibition –

Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey will feature the work of master artist and author Edward Gorey (1925-2000). Described by The New Yorker as “an artist and writer of genius,” Gorey’s signature pen-and-ink illustrations and witty writings have led him to be considered one of America’s most imaginative and eccentric creative artists. The exhibition will feature approximately 170 objects drawn from the Gorey Charitable Trust, including 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 Featured are original pen and ink illustrations, preparatory sketches, unpublished drawings and ephemera.

The show runs through October 31, 2010.
