Collection of stage and theatrical costume designs
Charles de Sousy Ricketts
- Art Funded
- Executors of the artist
Charles Ricketts had been a member of the Executive Committee of the National Art-Collections Fund for 15 years, and the Committee were glad to take the opportunity of purchasing from his executors, on favourable terms, the collection of theatrical drawings and designs which he left behind him. They did so in view of the fact that the drawings represent an important phase in the artist's work and in memory of one who, among all his many other activities, had for so long given to the Fund the best of his advice, taste and experience.
