End Paper Design for The Nightingale

End Paper Design for The Nightingale



Berkeley Sutcliffe was one of the leading stage designers of the mid 20th century. He was best known for his spectacular and amusing scenery and for the costumes which he designed for revue, musicals and pantomimes, but he also worked for the Bristol Old Vic, creating costumes and settings for Shakespeare. Sutcliffe successfully combined theatre work with a career at the famous London department store, Fortnum and Mason, where he was head designer, and for which he devised the clock that became its symbol. The Nightingale was a selection of songs and music for the piano by Kennedy Russell. It was published in 1947 by Chappell & Co Ltd.
