An exhibition of paintings celebrating some of the finest Victorian and Edwardian ghost and supernatural writers.

Painted by Anthony Keates, whose interest in the supernatural has come from living for a time in a haunted house in the Black Country and from watching the classic Ghost Story for Christmas on the BBC.

This exhibition includes miniature portraits of well-known writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, H P Lovecraft, Vernon Lee and E S Nesbit, through to some nowadays slightly forgotten authors. There are also larger paintings of scenes inspired by these great writers’ work.

The exhibition also includes a portrait of Austin Osman Spare, together with one of his actual watercolours.

There are prints, gothic boxes, bookends and gift cards on sale.
