- Full Description
Eric Ravilious was one of the best-known twentieth-century British artists, but this is also a biography of the group of fellow creators with whom he associated―men and women who inspired, challenged, and influenced one another―from their student days up through the Second World War. For many, his watercolors capture the spirit of midcentury England, as do his wood-engraved works, recalling the work of Lynd Ward and Clare Leighton. Here are his fellow students at the Royal College of Art such as Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman, Enid Marx, Percy Horton, Peggy Angus, and Helen Binyon.
Drawing on extensive research, Andy Friend considers the predecessors in the English watercolor and wood-engraving tradition that influenced the group’s art and demonstrates the significance of women artists, whose place within this interwar-era network has often been neglected.
Published to coincide with the seventy-fifth anniversary of Ravilious’s death, Ravilious & Co. accompanies an exhibition of the same name, touring throughout England in 2017.
215 illustrations, 145 in color.
