Edward St. John Gorey was born in Chicago, USA, February 22nd, 1925.
Gorey’s initial artistic inspiration was most likely his mother’s grandmother, Helen St. John Garvey, who illustrated greeting cards. This would explain his penchant for telling a story in a single visual image.
The dark yet playful artwork of Edward Gorey has been immortalized thanks to the American Public Broadcasting Service
