This is the original Pencil drawing by Ron Embleton.

Atmospheric book illustration for the classic novel Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, first published in 1860-61.

The novel is set in Kent and London in the early to mid-19th century and contains some of Dickens's most memorable scenes, including the opening in a graveyard, where the young Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch.

Great Expectations is full of extreme imagery—poverty, prison ships and chains, and fights to the death — and has a colourful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. These include the eccentric Miss Havisham, the beautiful but cold Estella, and Joe, the unsophisticated and kind blacksmith. Dickens's themes include wealth and poverty, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil.

This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection. Professionally matted ready for framing.
