“Graham Rust: Designs and Illustrations” showcases the artist’s designs for mural decoration, trompe l’oeil, and other smaller projects. The exhibition includes some of Rust’s original watercolor illustrations for Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden (1986) and A Little Princess (1989) as well as limited edition silk screen prints of two parrot tulips.
Graham Rust is internationally known for his mural and ceiling paintings which can be found in houses in Britain, Europe, and America. The most spectacular of these, “The Temptation” at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, took over a decade to complete.
His drawings and watercolors have been exhibited widely and can be found in collections throughout the world. The Painted House, his seminal book for designs for murals, was first published in 1988.
