Created in 1923, Clarke’s studies for The Eve of St Agnes window were inspired by a long Romantic poem by John Keats, while his lavish illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery & Imagination look to a darker experience. Purchased from the artist in 1924, these twenty-six national treasures in ink, pencil, watercolour, and stained glass have delighted, mesmerised, and even startled visitors for a century.
This exhibition brings Crawford Art Gallery’s full collection of Harry Clarke works together to offer visitors a rare and enriching experience of the beloved artist’s celebrated imagination and skill.
