Rex Whistler. The Triumph of Fancy


[Rex Whistler]

The catalogue for an exhibition on the work of Rex Whistler held at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in 2006. It was the first full-scale exhibition of Whistler's work since 1960. The curator Stephen Calloway provides an essay on Whistler's life and work and then illustrates a selection of Whistler's art including paintings, drawings, stage designs, illustrations and book plates. The catalogue ends with a list of mural decorations and designs for theatres, and a selective list of book illustrations.
