Literary Event, Sun 5 Nov 2017


Eric Ravilious was one of the most important British artists in the 20th century, but he did not work alone - he was part of a larger network of inter-war artists whose extraordinary work bridged the gap between fine art and design, and came to epitomise English values. For the first time, seventy-five years after Ravilious’ sudden death, comes the story of this extraordinary group.

This afternoon author Andy Friend will share newly discovered material revealing why this influential group of artists were marginalised from the mainstream history of 20th century art, along with their influence over each other and the often over-looked significance of the women in the group, from their student days through to the Second World War.

Andy Friend has spent a decade researching Ravilious and Co and is also the guest curator of a major national touring exhibition Ravilious & Co – the Pattern of Friendship, English Artist Designers 1922-42.
