Good Grief, Charlie Brown!
It is almost impossible to understand the impact that Charles M. Schulz original ‘Peanuts’ cartoons have had on the world. During his life, Schulz created 17,897 strips, syndicated to over 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries and translated into 21 languages, reaching a truly global audience in an era long before digital communications.
Somerset House’s latest exhibition, Good Grief, Charlie Brown!, takes a look at how a wide range of acclaimed contemporary artists and designers have been inspired by this highly influential and much-loved cartoon.
These original pieces are one-of-a-kind and an absolute treasure for anyone that grew up alongside the very famous Charlie Brown cartoon. Featuring original strips rarely seen in the UK or Europe, the exhibition celebrates Schulz’s prodigious output and examines his creative process.
Fans have the chance to see some new works created exclusively for this exhibition and take part in exhibition workshops which will run until the start of March.
The exhibition takes roughly an hour and you will be able to find more information by clicking this super slick magical link for iPhone and this link for Android…… or you could visit www.somersethouse.org.uk.
