A talented artist and journalist, Frederic Kitton was also an expert on Charles Dickens and published a number of books on the celebrated author. After moving to St Albans, Kitton’s growing fascination with the historic buildings of the Town saw him becoming involved with the foundation of the County Museum. An early advocate of the heritage movement, Kitton moved from drawing the historic past of St Albans to actively trying to preserve it.
This exhibition considers Kitton’s time in St Albans including his work on Dickens, his illustrations of the area and his developing interest in preserving the town’s historic past.
