Eric Ravilious

With help from The Art Fund, the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden, Essex, has recently acquired this atmospheric watercolour Caravans by Eric Ravilious (circa 1930's). These two caravans were home and studio to the artist and his wife during the 1930's, so this is an historically significant addition to the gallery's collection. It will go on public show for the first time in the exhibition Ravilious in Essex, which will open on 24 April and run until 14 August. The Mainstone Press will launch its book of the same name to coincide with the opening. Click the title link for more information.

Absolutely. And by a local artist I hadn't heard of before! (Bit before my time.) A nice find. There's a larger version in Thursday's ArtDaily. I didn't link to it, because the Fry Art Gallery has more information and is the prime link.
