Later, after reading four more chapters of ‘Bleak House’, I scanned another set of Charles Keeping’s inimitable illustrations.
‘Mrs Bagnet proposes a departure’ contains three of the artist’s portraits.
‘Clattering over the stones at a dangerous pace’ presents Mr Keeping’s sense of movement;
his mastery of perspective is demonstrated by ‘We stopped at the corner of a little slimy turning’
One of the portraits in ‘ ‘Who will tell him?’ ‘ will be recognised from the first of this quartet of pictures.
