Artist(s) Biographies:


TIRZAH GARWOOD (1908 – 51) excelled in marbling, wood-engraving, collage and a style of painting which fused English romanticism with her domestic life. Marriage – to the artist Eric Ravilious – and motherhood curtailed her artistic ambitions but not her imagination: she found creative expression and commercial success with intricately patterned papers created on teh kitchen table and in the bathtub. In Garwood’s early wood-engraving and later paintings dolls houses, train journeys and shop fronts are infused with her acerbic wit. Overshadowed by her husband’s success, this book celebrates the story of Tirzah Garwood as an artist in her own right.
