Description

The collected volumes of artist-designer Eric Ravilious’s preparatory works and materials provide a veritable mine of information about his work and working methods, particularly regarding the masterful development of his signature pure pattern. These scrapbooks document the considered progression of an inquisitive mind, grasping his chosen subjects in a unique and delicate visual language, where many of the artist’s most famous motifs and images can be seen blossoming from embryonic stages. Bringing together over 170 images taken from the artist’s 5 scrapbooks, accompanied by instructive commentary by the authors, this new book provides a fascinating record of the febrile imagination of one of Britain’s best-loved artists.
