Author(s) Biographies:

The chalk downland of southern England inspired Eric Ravilious to produce some of his finest paintings. Raised in Eastbourne, he rediscovered the South Downs in 1934 and over the next five years painted a series of watercolours that capture the beauty and mystery of this unique landscape. Twenty-two of these stunning paintings are featured in a new, 48 page hardback book ‘Ravilious In Pictures: Sussex and the Downs’.  Each painting is accompanied by a short essay in which author James Russell explores the intriguing stories hidden behind the scenes – stories about Ravilious and his circle, English culture in the 1930s and the constantly evolving landscape in which Ravilious chose to work. As a whole, the essays paint a captivating portrait of this popular English artist.
