Family, Friendships, Landscapes: Rex Whistler: Inspiration Read My rating: 1 of 5 stars 2 of 5 stars 3 of 5 stars 4 of 5 stars [ 5 of 5 stars ] Family, Friendships, Landscapes: Rex Whistler: Inspiration Family, Friendships, Landscapes: Rex Whistler: Inspiration by Hugh Cecil

This small book is an amuse-bouche to Hugh and Mirabel Cecil’s 2012 book, In Search of Rex Whistler, the publication of which coincided with a fantastic exhibition at the Salisbury Museum that I was fortunate enough to see.

This book focuses more on the Cecil’s family’s personal connection to Rex Whistler and his brother Lawrence. A small book it may be, but it makes for a perfect companion to their earlier, major retrospective, or Lawrence Whistler’s own, The Laughter and the Urn and provides us with a complimentary take Rex Whistler’s short but fascinating life and work.
