After attending an exhibition of the work of his late friend Viktor Hartmann in 1874, Mussorgsky composed a piano work which in 1922 was orchestrated by Ravel and then became world renowned.

With his rhymes Philip de Vos has modernised this piece by making it accessible to modern readers, while still maintaining the feeling of this classic masterpiece. The witty and smart Pictures at an Exhibition follows the visitor as he moves from one painting to the next.


Both author and illustrator are well-loved and well-known locally and elsewhere and their previous collaborative work such as Carnival of the Animals are not only etched in the hearts of many South-Africans, but has been translated into many foreign languages.
