Description

Talk by James Russell, Art Historian

Eric Ravilious was only 39 when he died on active service as a war artist in 1942, yet he had already achieved amazing things. A brilliant wood engraver and designer, Ravilious is best known for his haunting watercolours in which white horses, railway carriages and downland paths become marvels. Offering an intimate view of his life and work, this colourful lecture will leave you in no doubt that Ravilious would have loved the Pendon Museum!

James Russell is an art historian and curator who has written a book about Eric Ravilious and curated the 2015 Ravilious Exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery. He has lectured at the V&A and Royal West of England Academy.

The museum will open at 18:30 and the talk will begin at 19:00. Light refreshments will be provided. The museum will close at 21:00.
