Ravilious, Eric – Submarine Engineer

Lithograph for ‘High Street’, 1938 – one of 24 exquisite images of pre-war shops. John Piper (previewing the work in ‘Signature’, 1937) writes: ‘Ravilious is a particularly English artist…..there is probably no-one else who could have made these records at once so faithfully and imaginatively. There is about them the suggestion that you are looking in at a series of gay, old-fashioned parties from the matter-of-fact street in the present. They are records of a passing beauty, but they are full of present-day experience. And they are faithful enough to look like tuck-shops full of sherbert, liquorice and lollipops – which, after all, is one of the chief appeals of the attractive shop’.

 

Format: Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/850) on 310gsm thick, 100% cotton rag. Hand-numbered and hand-embossed. Mount included.

Size: 14.5 x 13.0; paper 29.5 x 21.0; mount 42.6 x 34.3cm

Postage: All UK postage, whether for framed or unframed prints, is free of charge.
