ERIC RAVILIOUS: ARTIST & DESIGNER. Alan Powers. Lund Humphries, Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2013. 216 pp. with 239 ills. (176 col.). 28 x 26 cm. LC 2013-937532 ISBN 9781848221116 In English.
Publisher's description: More popular than ever, the work of Eric Ravilious (1903-42) is rooted in the landscape of pre-war and early wartime England. This new book by Alan Powers, the established authority on Ravilious, provides the most comprehensive overview to date of the artist's work in all media -- watercolour, illustration, printmaking, graphic design, textiles and ceramics -- and firmly positions Ravilious as a major figure in the history of early 20th-century British art. In an accessible and engaging text, copiously illustrated with reproductions of work drawn from a range of sources, Alan Powers discusses the part Ravilious' work played in creating an English style, positioned between tradition and modernism, and borrowing from naive and popular art of the past. The book analyses Ravilious' different spheres of activity in turn, covering his education and formative influences, his mural painting, his printmaking and illustration, his work as leader in forming a new style of watercolour painting between the wars and his final period as an official War Artist.
