A joyful and celebratory gift book devoted to the work of the much-loved English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) and the influence of natural forms and themes in his work. Eric Ravilious was a designer, painter, printmaker and illustrator best known for his depictions of the English landscape, particularly the South Downs.

Often described as a particularly 'English' artist, the key to his style was an ability to convey in watercolour the mild vagaries of the British climate. His engagement with nature, though romantic rather than precise, pervades his works in many different techniques.

 

This book explores his appreciation of the natural world and the techniques he used in a variety of media to convey those elements. Drawing on the V&A's collections, more than 100 beautiful images capture Ravilious's deep enjoyment of everything in nature, from dewponds, cockerels, grassy hills, owls, greenhouse geraniums, cornsheaves and snow, to the rainy seas, airport-runway puddles and tide-swept beaches of his later work as a war artist.

 

The book includes sections on weather, plants, landscape, animals and birds, and ends with a section devoted to man in the landscape, showcasing Ravilious's love of rusting machinery and other signs of human presence within nature, not least his famous depictions of hillside chalk figures.

This book will appeal to those with a love of English landscapes, flora and fauna or an interest in British art and design in the interwar period.
