This high quality giclée reproduction is from the original watercolour on paper produced by Eric Ravilious in 1940.

This is a rare Ravilious work, not only because Ravilious seldom depicts people in his paintings, but because there’s a poignant combination of task at hand with sheer beauty of place. Naval officers have been sent to the oyster beds at Whitestable, Kent, to diffuse a German magnetic mine – one of only two washed up on the English coast. Two of the men, Commander Obbard and Lieutenant West, were awarded the Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) for their courage, and the painting took pride of place amongst Ravilious’ works when exhibited after the war at the first War Artists’ Exhibition.

Printed on 310gsm, cotton rag paper. Numbered in pencil from an edition of 950 copies.
