Biographical / Historical

Florence Chaplin was an artist and a granddaughter of Ebenezer Landells, one of the founders of Punch. She and Shepard won several Academy prizes at the turn of the century and they were married in 1904. They moved to a rural cottage at Shamley Green, Surrey, where they drew and painted constantly, and often served as models for each other. Florence died during a routine operation in 1927, by which time the Shepards had become close friends with the family of A.A. Milne, marking the beginning of Ernest's rise to international renown as the illustrator of Winnie-the-Pooh.
