To celebrate Ronald's 91st let's take a look back at last years' celebratory exhibitions for his 90th. For those who couldn't make it to London here's a birthday treat. The highlight was the Cartoon Museum's retrospective curated by Anita O Brien with the collaboration of Ronald and Monica Searle and Steve Bell.
Featuring hundreds of choice pieces it was heaven for Searle fans!

Across town at Chris Beetles' gallery they were celebrating with an extensive retrospective too. Some pieces were on loan from the collections of Searle fans but most were available to purchase.
