Product description

Review

We're great fans of the English watercolourist Eric Ravilious here at Stella. So we were thrilled to see the beautiful new book `Ravilious in Pictures'. --Stella, Sunday Telegraph, December 2009

Ravilious's watercolour landscapes of the South Downs were painted mainly in the second half of the 1930s, and are beautifully reproduced here alongside insightful essays from the social historian James Russell. --London Review of Books, January 2010

Each [watercolour] is accompanied by a short essay in which James Russell cleverly mixes history and biographical detail. Thus in the text on `The Wilmington Giant' (1939), we learn about the possible meanings of the great carved figure, the increasing public interest in archaeology inspired by discoveries such as Tutankhamun's tomb and the Sutton Hoo burial site, the invention of barbed wire, and a chance meeting Ravilious had with the owner of the Giant on a train in 1941... The next volume from Mainstone Press is eagerly awaited. --Sarah Drury, The Art Book, August 2010

Containing 22 full-page colour plates, the book dwells on Sussex and the South Downs, which remained an inspiration for the artist. James Russell's writing has the clarity and concision of the paintings, and is both properly informative and enjoyably readable... Glorious.
--Andrew Lambirth, The Art Newspaper, September 2010
