Greenlit: The Man Behind The Masquerade, BBC4

The Man Behind The Masquerade (1×60′) In 1979 artist Kit Williams published Masquerade, an exquisitely illustrated children’s story which contained clues to where the author had buried a priceless bejewelled charm in the form of a golden hare. His idea took the public by storm and catapulted him to fame. But it also destroyed his artistic credibility, dashing his promising career as a painter, and forcing him to live as a virtual recluse.

Featuring an exclusive television interview with the reclusive Williams, this film asks whether it’s time to reappraise the work of a very British artist, who was arguably just ahead of his time.
