Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton)
The Mystery of Edwin Drood - Mr. Sapsea (Original)

The Mystery of Edwin Drood -  Mr. Sapsea (Original) by Charles Dickens (Ron Embleton) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: RE0570 (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.

A charming sketch of Mr. (Thomas) Sapsea - the comically conceited auctioneer who by the time of Drood's disappearance has become Mayor of Cloisterham. This sketch was 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.
