Comics Uncovered: From Glasgow to Gotham Exhibition
Posted by Mount Stuart Trust
Delve into the fascinating history of comic books in the Bute Collection and trace how this multi-modal form of storytelling developed over time in Mount Stuart's summer exhibition, 'Comics Uncovered: From Glasgow to Gotham'.
This exhibition uncovers the evolution of comics, from the anarchic satirists of the Georgian era to mavericks of modern comics. A range of artists, writers, and publishers from the UK to Europe, and the USA will be shown in Mount Stuart's exhibition space, including work by James Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, Jonathan Swift, Punch, Charles Dickens, George Belcher, DC Thomson, DC Comics, Marvel, and so much more.
From caricatures and original drawings to archival material, toys, and books: a fascinating array of items collected by the Bute Family over the course of several generations will be on display for our visitors.
Explore the extraordinary history of comics through the Bute Collection at Mount Stuart this summer!
