Catalogue Note

Professor Richard Guyatt (1914–2007) was one of the foremost graphic designers of the 20th century. Asides from designing work for Wedgwood he was a professor at the Royal College of Art and then Rector there from 1978 until 1981. Interestingly, before the Coronation, he co-designed the Lion and the Unicorn Pavilion for the Festival of Britain in 1951. Part of this site, on London’s Southbank, was used for the construction of The National Theatre, a project of great importance to Laurence.
