Ravilious was a leading exponent of wood engraving in the 1920's.

He was taught by Paul Nash at the Royal College of Art and became

a close friend of Edward Bawden. Both artists, together with their

artist wives Tirzah Ravilious and Charlotte Bawden shared a

house at Great Bardfield in Essex. Ravilious became an official

war artist in 1940 and tragically failed to return from an air-sea

rescue mission off Iceland in 1942.

 

His sensitive and accomplished watercolours, drawings, book

illustrations and ceramic designs for Wedgwood have continued

to influence a generation of British design.

The Imperial War Museum in London organised a major retrospective

in 2004.

We are pleased to have the largest collection of original Ravilious designs

for Wedgwood available for sale.
