Edward Gorey is internationally lauded for his phenomenal crosshatched ink drawings, but his watercolors are every bit as masterful in revealing his virtuoso style and cunning humor. Gorey produced more than one hundred illustrated works as well as prize-winning costume designs and theater sets during his prolific career. His brilliance shines through his writing as well as his imagery, and both place him high in the pantheon of 20th-century artists.

Artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) is beloved for the boundless imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than 100 published works. Gorey was also a set and costume designer for innumerable theater productions, including a staging of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, for which he won a Tony. He had a profound affection for literature, film, ballet, and animals. Cats and other odd creatures appear in many of his crosshatched illustrations. His humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends became familiar to a wide audience after appearing in the opening credits of the PBS television series Mystery! Gorey’s Cape Cod home, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, is now a museum celebrating his life and work.
