Newt Pond Limited Edition Print by Eric Ravilious

The celebrated British artist Ravilious had a fascination with landscape and place and was taught by one of the best landscape painters of the era at the Royal College of Art - Paul Nash. Watercolour had fallen out of fashion as a medium in the mid-19th century but was making a comeback at this time and the works of Nash and Ravillious gained a large following. 

This watercolour and pencil work was produced in 1932. There’s a serene and restrained beauty here - Flint barns and peg-tiled roofs are painted in repeat, reflected as they are on the surface of the water. Eric Ravilious has always been known as a quintessentially English artist, and here you see why. Not only are these vernacular English farm buildings, but the colours in the spring countryside are typical and you can see tufts of early daffodils, the trees are newly in leaf, and the sky is a beautiful, vivid egg-shell blue. This is an exceptional print in the Ravillious watercolour print range.


To decipher Eric Ravilious's unique painting style, one must look to his background and character. Ravillious was known as an affable personality who loved dancing and japes, and was always whistling. He had an "extraordinary Pan-like charm", according to his artist friend, John Lake. Artist Edward Bawden, a lifelong friend he met at the Royal College of Art where they both trained in the 1930s, called him "the Boy" because of his youthful vigour.
