Blake's cherubs tickle a French institution - Times 2 - Times Online

Quentin Blake was the first artist ever allowed to graffiti over the walls of the National Gallery, alongside Old Masters. When he was Children�s Laureate he selected 26 storytelling paintings for a show called Tell Me a Picture, and added his own embellishments. Now he�s done something similar in Paris. At the newly restored Petit Palais, just off the Champs Elys?, Blake was given carte blanche to choose 58 paintings and prints from among the 45,000 buried in the museum�s vaults, and to do his own drawings in the spaces between. The result is a captivating exhibition called Quentin Blake et les Demoiselles des Bords de Seine.
