It is an image so sweet and innocent to be worthy of tears: Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet walking home in the golden evening having said good-bye to their friends in the Hundred Acre Wood following Christopher Robin’s party for Pooh.
Signed by artist Ernest “E.H.” Shepard, this original final drawing of Pooh and Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood, arguably the most important Winnie-the-Pooh drawing in existence, is available at Bonhams Fine Books and Manuscripts Auction December 13. Pre-auction estimates for the pen and ink on board illustration (10 1/2 x 4 1/2 in): $250,000-$350,000.
A.A. Milne’s children’s classic Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. Milne wrote the story for his son, Christopher Robin, and it became an international bestseller. Winnie-the-Pooh may well be the most universally loved character in all of children’s books.
