Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton)
Our Mutual Friend - Gaffer and Lizzie Hexham (Original)

Our Mutual Friend - Gaffer and Lizzie Hexham (Original) by Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: RE0556 (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.

Lizzie Hexam is a daughter of Gaffer Hexam and sister of Charley Hexam. She is an affectionate daughter, but knows that Charley must escape their living circumstances if he is to succeed in life, so she gives Charley her money and helps him leave while their father is away. Later she is rejected by Charley after she remains in poverty.

Pursued romantically by both Bradley Headstone and Eugene Wrayburn, she fears Headstone's violent passion and yearns for Wrayburn's love, while acutely aware of the social gap between them. Lizzie saves Wrayburn from Headstone's attack and the two are married. She in effect acts as the moral centre of the story and is by far the "most wholly good character […] almost bereft of ego".
