A Caroliniana Interior by Artist
Philip Mullen

Internationally renowned artist Philip Mullen, who retired in June after teaching at USC's Art Department since 1969, made this printed drawing of the South Caroliniana's Library's reading room in the early 1990s. He created it to explore the manifold variations that result from applying paint to a printed work.

The Library houses a basic archival research collection on Mullen's career.

Mullen was featured in an article written by assistant director Thomas L. Johnson in the Fall 2000 issue of the USC library publication Ex Libris.
