About the Exhibit:
In the late 1950s, Mr and Mrs Alfred Berol donated to Columbia the largest collection of original work by the book illustrator Arthur Rackham in the United States. "Enchanted Vision" is the Rare Book & Manuscript Library's first Rackham exhibition in over twenty-five years, presenting pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings as well as material from the sketchbooks in the collection--shedding light not only on Rackham's diverse work but on his process.
