Encapsulating a lifetime of work into four categories: Flora and Fauna; Murals; Trompe L'Oeil; and Illustrations, the exhibition will showcase many of the artist's original pieces. There will be familiar imagery such as the watercolor illustrations from The Secret Garden and The Little Princess as well as some never before seen mural-design pieces completed for private residences. Selected works will be available for purchase.
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.
