Eric Fraser is one of the most significant British illustrators and designers of the 20th century, who produced work that is at once wide-ranging and highly distinctive. Developing an assured technique and an impressive general knowledge, he could adapt his style to almost any subject matter, from ancient to modern, and any mood, from the whimsical to the tragic. He was also industrious, meticulous and dependable. As a result, he defined the look of Radio Times for over four decades and became a mainstay of J M Dent’s Everyman’s Library – while also creating impressive murals and stained glass windows and an astonishing variety of advertising. This catalogue of the major retrospective exhibition, of 300 works, surveys Fraser’s entire career, and touches on almost every aspect of his achievement, from rare early watercolours to late designs for the boxes for BBC study tapes.
