It is with sadness that we note the death of Leicester artist Dr Rigby Graham. Graham attended the Leicester College of Art and then returned as a lecturer in graphic design, printing and bookbinding. He was also an Associate Fellow of Leicester Polytechnic. He was well-known for his landscape works as well as book illustrations and murals.
The DMU Art Collection and Archives includes works by Graham. In 1953 he was responsible for the artwork in the College of Art Diary, taking a theme of seasonal Leicester landscapes.
