Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters

Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters

January 15, 2013, Executive Committee members visited the current exhibit of Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters at the Morgan Library. The original ideas for many of Beatrix Potter’s stories can be found in the  manuscript picture letters she wrote to children of friends and family members. Perhaps the most famous example is The Tale of Peter Rabbit, which began as an eight-page letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of her former governess, Annie Moore.
