The author and artist Mervyn Peake is being commemorated with a blue plaque in Sark.
The plaque, which is the first of its kind in the island, has been unveiled on the Gallery Stores building in a ceremony attended by members of his family.
Mervyn Peake moved to Sark in 1932 where he played a key role in the building of the gallery.
The unveiling takes place 86 years to the day that the first exhibition was held at the venue.
Peake lived in many locations across the island including an apartment above the gallery itself until 1936. Many of his early paintings were exhibited there.
He is remembered as one of the great British writers of the 20th century. He is best known for his Gormenghast trilogy, as well as his 1953 novel Mr Pye which was set in Sark. It tells the story of a man who travels to the island to spread the word of God and begins to grow wings.
Fabian Peake, one of Mervyn's sons, says Sark had a significant impact on his father's work.
As well as his son, four of Mervyn's grandchildren and four of his great grandchildren attended the ceremony.
