Tove Jans­son at Dul­wich Pic­ture Gallery Chron­i­cling the lives of the myth­i­cal, white Moomins was Jans­son’s big­gest com­mer­i­cal suc­cess, but as the first ret­ro­spec­tive of her work held in the UK proves, she was also a fine fig­u­ra­tive artist (25 Oc­to­ber–28 Jan­uary 2018; dul­wich­pic­ture­gallery.org.uk).

‘Royal Fabergé’ at the Sains­bury Cen­tre, Nor­wich Al­though many of Rus­sian jew­eller Carl Fabergé’s ob­jets d’art were melted down in Rus­sia after the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion, a trea­sure trove of pieces com­mis­sioned by Ed­ward VII sur­vived, and will be dis­played in all their glory (14 Oc­to­ber–11 Fe­bru­ary 2018; scva.ac.uk).

‘Sheer Folly – Fan­ci­ful Build­ings of Bri­tain’ at York­shire Sculp­ture Park This ex­hi­bi­tion by Ed Kluz – featuring col­lages, oil paint­ings and prints – cel­e­brates cu­ri­ous and fan­tas­ti­cal build­ings through­out the UK, in­clud­ing a sum­mer­house in the shape of a pineap­ple (11 Novem­ber–25 Fe­bru­ary 2018; ysp.org.uk).
