Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 9 November 2005
Whilst it seems churlish to have any reservations about a book on Ravilious given the dearth of titles about this artist, I am disappointed that several paintings have been reproduced in black and white. That is a minor quibble. Overall, this is a fine survey of Eric Ravilous's works.
If you aren't familiar with this artist, he bears a passing resemblance to Paul Nash. There is a deep-seated pastoralism in many of the pictures that clearly has its root in the visionary paintings of Blake and Palmer, but it is a 20th-century view that is free of any sentimentality or religious dogma. Ravilious died young, disappearing on a flight during active service in World War Two. This book offers a tantalising glimpse of the artist's potential.
