A truly prodigious and original artist, Edward Gorey (1925-2000) lived in an historic house in Strawberry Lane, Yarmouth Port. He gave to the world over 100 works, and you can visit his home, which is a lovely stroll from the Inn, to see his wonderful, quirky, and sometimes dark artworks and writings. His illustrations were published in The New Yorker, The New York Times and in books by a wide array of authors from Charles Dickens to Edward Lear. The museum is planning a new exhibit for 2009 called “Celebrate Gorey’s Creatures - Real and Imagined”, which will run from April 16th to December. His many animal caracatures challenge and delight the mind, and a visit to this wonderful home should not be missed.
