Eric Ravilious: Downland Man
Catalogue to accompany the exhibition
An exhibition, at Wiltshire Museum, from 25 September to 30 January 2022, is the first to explore the artist’s lifelong fascination for the chalk downland of southern England. A catalogue to accompany the exhibition has been written by James Russell, guest curator, who has written and lectured extensively on 20th Century British art and design.
From his student days until the last year of his life, Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) returned again and again to the Downs, inspired particularly by the relationship between landscape and people. Watercolours and wood engravings included in the exhibition and catalogue show dew ponds and farmyards, a cement works and a field roller, modern military fortifications and ancient monuments. Iconic watercolours such as The Westbury Horse and The Wilmington Giant, are also included, alongside other rarely-seen works. The exhibition and catalogue offer a new view of the artist as a chronicler of the landscape he knew better than any other.
A must have for all Ravilious fans.
