Drawings for a Beloved Wife

In Ronald Searle’s most recent book, Les Très Riches Heures De Mrs Mole, published just three months before he died, the author brought to light the 47 drawings he produced for his wife, Monica Searle, as she was treated for a rare and virulent form of cancer over a five-year period in the early 1970s. She survived, and the intimate drawings stand as a moving testimony to love and hope.
