'The Illustrators' provides the opportunity to view Mervyn Peake's unique take on characters from Charles Dickens' 'Bleak House' - parallels between the artist and the great novelist are extremely marked. Peake has vividly captured this cast of grotesques in a way that Dickens would surely have approved wholeheartedly
