Beatrix Potter, Artist and Illustrator

This exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, ends on 22 January 2006. Note the title. Do you detect an implied distinction between artist and illustrator? Like maybe artists are something above illustrators, who are merely skilled manual workers? Who do they think creates illustrations but artists? (See my previous blog in similar vein.)
