Much more than an illustrator and designer, Eric Ravilious (1903-42) is now widely recognised as one of the most important and innovative British artists of the 20th century. While at the Royal College of Art, where he was taught by Paul Nash, he formed a close network of fellow artists and designers. The artist was outgoing and popular, but also hardworking, specialising in a variety of techniques, particularly wood engraving and watercolour. At the start of the Second World War, he became an RAF war artist, but in 1942 the plane he was on board disappeared before it reached its destination in Iceland, and the artist was never found. The talk will be given by lecturer Peter Scott.
