This exhibition of the artist and designer Eric Ravilious (1903 – 1942) explores the significant relationships and working collaborations between Ravilious and an important group of friends and affiliates.

The works on show represent the wide range of media in which the artists worked, from watercolours to woodcuts, lithographic prints, book jackets and illustrations, patterned papers, and wallpaper and fabric design and includes work by Paul and John Nash and Enid Marx.

Featuring many of Ravilious’ key works, this exhibition focuses on moments when their lives, work and careers of this group of contemporaries coincided, such as their time at the Royal College of Art, London and at Furlongs and Newhaven in Sussex, and their various roles in the Second World War.
