A Case of Perspective: Sidney Paget's Visions of Sherlock Holmes - Dr Christopher Pittard

15th Nov 2017 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Business and Law building - Rm 102

Following a lukewarm reception for the first two Sherlock Holmes novels, Arthur Conan Doyle’s move to the Strand Magazine in 1891 proved the catalyst for the detective’s popular success. Part of this success was Doyle’s collaboration with the artist Sidney Paget, and the manner in which Paget’s images provided a striking new visual identity for Holmes. Dr Christopher Pittard argues that Paget’s illustrations play a crucial role in the narratives’ creation of meaning.
