Summer Lecture:

Ravilious and Bawden: An Artistic Friendship

James Russell, author of the popular Ravilious in Pictures series, gives this talk on Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious. When they met on their first day at the Design School of the Royal College of Art they immediately became friends and remained so until Eric's untimely death in 1942. Although very different in character, they shared a fascination for Georgian and Victorian art. They were delighted by the idiosyncratic and shared a determination to reinvent the English watercolour tradition. Complimentary drink included before the lecture.
