The art of Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) captured the spirit of the twentieth century: modern English watercolours, witty and concise wood engravings, and a range that spanned designs for Wedgwood ceramics and the Everyman Library. The Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden holds a unique collection of his work, in this book, beautifully illustrated, Frances Spalding explores Ravilious’s work and biography, including his creative relationship with North West Essex. Alan Powers examines his innovative work in twentieth-century design, in particular his wood cuts and his work for Wedgwood.
