The Lifeboat Art Print by Eric Ravilious
Vibrant and filled with summer colours this limited edition art print of 'The Lifeboat' by Eric Ravilious is one of our best selling artworks. During the Summer of 1938 Ravilious visited the Suffolk seaside town of Aldeburgh. There he painted a group of unusually vivid watercolours, including two studies of the town’s idiosyncratic bathing machines and this exuberant picture of a lifeboat. This Lifeboat, named the Abdy Beauclerk after a keen yachtsman who had died twenty years earlier, had been launched in May 1932 by Prince Albert. She went on to enjoy a long and distinguished career, carrying out the first rescue of World War II on 10 September 1939 and subsequently taking part in the Dunkirk. 'Aldeburgh Bathing Machines' is also available from our website as a limited edition fine art print.
