About The Artist
Eric Ravilious was born in London in 1903. He studied and later taught at the Royal College of Art. He is now recognised as a key figure of the great renaissance period of English art and design in the 1920s and 30s. His wood-engravings for the Curwen, Nonesuch and Golden Cockerel Presses and design commissions for Wedgwood represent his best known work. He was also a distinguished painter. He died in 1942 on active service as a war artist.
