Event description

Description

Eric Ravilious was only 39 when he died on active service as a war artist in 1942. A brilliant wood engraver and designer, he is best known today for his haunting watercolours in which lighthouses, white horses, empty rooms and downland paths become marvels. Over the past decade, James Russell has explored many of these paintings in depth, teasing out stories and characters hidden in the wings. This entertaining illustrated talk draws on this research to illuminate the life and work of a playful, enigmatic artist in watercolour, wood engraving, lithography and ceramics.

James Russell studied history at Pembroke College, Cambridge. James was curator of the 2015 exhibition Ravilious at Dulwich Picture Gallery. He has written books on Ravilious and other artists. He has lectured at the V&A , London and RWA. Bristol. BRSLI has a lift.

£13.50 per person, including teas and coffee
