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.
“Graham Rust: Design and Illustrations” is an focused exhibition of his origianl designs for mural decoration, trompe l’oeil and other smaller projects. Included are 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.
