I realized the Searle exhibition at the Fitzwilliam had published a
catalogue and swiftly put in an order which arrived this week. It's a
slim but important volume with revealing text from those involved with
curating the show and its complimentary exhibition at the Anglia Ruskin
art school, Searle's alma mater. There are words from Ronald's Literary
Agent Rachel Calder delightfully describing visits to the Searles.
Also Professor of illustration at Anglia Ruskin Martin Salisbury and Jane
Munro Keeper Paintings, Drawings and Prints at the Fitzwilliam, and an introduction by Quentin Blake.
The catalogue contains several photographs from Searle's personal collection revealing his day to day concerns and disciplined work ethic. You can order from the museum online store here
