Theatre drawings by Nicholas Harding

Nicholas Harding (1956–2022) was an artist of immense talent who could see the whimsical and beautiful in anything he turned his eye, and hand to. Of all the art forms, he had a particular love for theatre, and over many years would sit in the rehearsal room, watching and drawing from the wings. It was an honour to work with Nicholas, collating the drawings and crafting this book that captures all of his quiet observations. He leaves behind an outstanding body of artwork, and also this impressive volume of drawings that document the charm, thrill, absurdity and beauty of theatre-making.
