Tea at Furlongs Art Print by Eric Ravilious
Painted in 1939, Tea at Furlongs has become one of Eric's most iconic watercolour paintings. A table is laid for tea on a sunny Sussex day in Glynde near Lewes and yet this simple scene is imbued with a mysterious quality unique to the paintings of Ravilious. The table is set with a teapot, milk jug, bone handled knives and plates ready for bread and butter shaded from the sun by a grey umbrella. In the background lies the rolling Sussex countryside. However, the two chairs are empty and there is a sense of expectancy and waiting. Like many of his scenes, there are no figures. Perhaps it makes more sense when you realise that this watercolour was painted in August 1939 on the eve of the war that was going to have such an impact on the lives of so many. 'Tea at Furlongs' is a painting full to the brim with meaning and mystery.
