By Maryann Yin Comment

Beatrix Potter 200 (GalleyCat)Melford Hall will host a public display of four previously unseen Beatrix Potter drawings. The Guardian reports that Potter (pictured, via) made frequent visits to the property, which was owned by some of her relatives, from 1899 to 1938.

The opening date of this exhibition will take place on July 13. The closing date is scheduled for the last weekend of October 2016.

Here’s more from Melford Hall’s website: “Four delicate line drawings of scenes from both inside and outside Melford Hall are to be shown for the very first time as part of an exhibition celebrating Beatrix’s links here. The exhibition will reveal more about her interests and artistic inspirations away from the famous animal characters that brought her children’s stories to life.” (via Entertainment Weekly)
