Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton)
Nicholas Nickleby - Ralph Nickleby and Newman Noggs (Original)

Nicholas Nickleby - Ralph Nickleby and Newman Noggs (Original) by Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: RE0552 (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Ron Embleton (biography)
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size: 12" x 16" (300mm x 410mm)

This is the original Pencil drawing by Ron Embleton.

Ralph Nickleby is the book's principal antagonist and Nicholas's uncle. He seems to care about nothing but money and takes an immediate dislike to the idealistic Nicholas; however, he does harbour something of a soft spot for Kate.

Ralph's anger at Nicholas's beating of Wackford Squeers leads to a serious rift with his nephew, and after Nicholas interferes with his machinations several more times, Ralph schemes to deliberately hurt and humiliate Nicholas; but the only man Ralph ends up destroying is himself. When it is revealed that Smike was his son, and that the boy died hating him, he takes his own life. He dies without a will, and his family refuses to take his property, so his hard-earned fortune is given back to the Crown and lost.

Newman Noggs: Ralph's clerk, who becomes Nicholas's devoted friend. He was once a businessman of high standing but went bankrupt. He is an alcoholic, and his general good nature and insight into human nature is hidden under a veneer of irrational tics and erratic behaviour.
