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

This is the original Pencil drawing by Ron Embleton.

A charming sketch used to illustrate an edition of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the final novel by Charles Dickens. The novel was unfinished at the time of Dickens's death on 9 June 1870.

Though the novel is named after the character Edwin Drood, it focuses more on Drood's uncle, John Jasper, a precentor, choirmaster and opium addict, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Miss Bud, Edwin Drood's fiancée, has also caught the eye of the high-spirited and hot-tempered Neville Landless. Landless and Edwin Drood take an instant dislike to one another. Later Drood disappears under mysterious circumstances.

The story is set in Cloisterham, a lightly disguised Rochester.

This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection.
