Eric Ravilious was one of the best painters to emerge between the wars - and one of the great original wood-engravers, surpassed only by Thoms Bewick himself. His work was wide-ranging and multifaceted, and in the nine years after he left art school he produced an extraordinary amount of work - murals, watercolor paintings, wood-engravings, lithographs, pottery for Wedgewood, and even some pieces of furniture. In the introduction to the book, Richard Morphet places Ravilious in the context of modern-day appreciation of his work and describes the close relationship between Helen Binyon and Eric Ravilious that led her to write this illuminating book. Foreword by John Rothenstein. With 25 full color and 90 black and white illustrations; chronology; bibliography; index. Very fine.
