Published to accompany the upcoming exhibition ‘Ravilious’ at Dulwich Picture Gallery, this book is the first full-length critical study to focus on the watercolours of multi-talented British artist and designer Eric Ravilious (1903–42). Ravilious is widely considered one of the key figures in mid 20th-century British design but he was also one of the finest watercolourists of the century. An introductory essay offers an intimate portrait of Ravilious, an artist for whom personal relationships, particularly with women, were paramount. A comprehensive selection of Ravilious’s watercolours follows, with over 100 colour images – some of which have never been published, while others are familiar and well loved.
