Inhaltsangabe: An illustrated book showing how Graham Rust's designs for walls, ceilings, architectural features and furnishings can be adapated to any house or flat on a grand or small scale. The author shares his experience of painting interiors, providing designs and motifs for figurative work and patterned decoration, explaining the logic of room design and offering technical expertise and insight. As the book is designed to be used in practical ways to enable readers to copy and adapt the room designs to their own particular spaces there are pages of original designs and working drawings interspersed with room plans and examples of painted rooms. Photographs of projects to date illustrate paintings in situ and a step-by-step sequence shows the full progress of a design from working drawings to completed mural. The author's most celebrated mural is the landscape and figure painting which now covers the entire staircase at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire. His paintings and drawings were used to illustrate "The Secret Garden".
Rezension: Artist Graham Rust has long aspired to decorate an entire house with murals and trompe l'oeil decorations. Since visiting Italy, he has been inspired by the frescoes of Veronese in the Villa Barbaro at Maser. His dream, although practically unrealistic, has finally been realised in this beautiful book. Basing his idea on an 18th century house designed by Sir William Chambers and later extended, he adorns every room with his truly wonderful and imaginative paintings. From the attic to the basement, via bedrooms, dining rooms, hallways and stairs. Designs from the classical to the contemporary, from the East to the West, botanical and zoological, all are encompassed under one roof, giving each room an intensely individual feel. Not just for professional artists, this book will also inspire the ordinary homeowner who wants to stamp their own personality on their house. Techniques are clearly explained and the theory behind his choice of designs well-founded. This is a remarkable book, full of inspiration and amazing ideas - a must for all those with an artistic bent and a love of the unusual. - Lucy Watson
