Rex Whistler (1905 – 1944) was one of the most prolific, diverse and popular artists of the interwar years in England. Known for his wit and humour, he was equally talented in a wide variety of artistic pursuits.

The exhibition will focus on the relationship with his patrons and explore his working practices. It will contain many previously unseen initial sketches from the museum’s Rex Whistler Archive. There will also be loans from the National Trust, National Army Museum, Welsh Guards, West Dean College and private collections.
