Extraordinary Everyday - The Art & Design of Eric Ravilious
Hampshire Cultural Trust
Catalogue to accompany the Extraordinary Everyday: The Art & Design of Eric Ravilious exhibition
Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) was only 39 when he died on active service, but he had already achieved incredible things in the fields of fine art and design. 80 years after his death, this dazzling new exhibition will guide visitors through his brilliant career, showcasing wood engravings, watercolours, books, ceramics and lithographs.
Among the many highlights are stunning watercolours from public collections, such as Train Landscape, and rarely-seen works from private collections, including Room at the William the Conqueror. This fully-illustrated catalogue to accompany the exhibition has been specially written by James Russell, guest curator, previously curator of the 2015 blockbuster Ravilious at Dulwich Picture Gallery. James has written extensively on 20th century British art and design, always exploring the artist's life as much as their work.
