In the Tennant Gallery and Council Room
In the Tennant Gallery and Council Room. Sir Hugh Casson PRA (1910-1999) was probably the most popular British architect of his time. As a man of great wit and charm, with a light and fluent touch in design and drawing, Casson bridged the often acrimonious gap which divided traditional and modern artists and architects in the mid to late twentieth century. His drawings and watercolours in this exhibition illustrate how his training in the 1930s as an early modernist was put to highly pragmatic use when during the war years he was responsible for camouflaging airfields.
