Notes:
"Shirley Smith's murals illustrated on pp. 25, 38-39, 43, 61, 152. Caroline Cass's survey of contemporary murals, like Patricia Seligman's book the year before ... was published in both England and the United States in several hardback and paperback editions. Here Shirley Smith's trompe l'oeil murals, the first of which he executed in 1976 for owners of the Doric Villa in Regent's Park, were properly credited."--Moss.
