Eric Ravilious: Going Modern / Being British

Exhibition: 10 March - 29 April 2012, The Royal West of England Academy, Bristol.

Going Modern / Being British examines the life and work of Eric Ravilious: war artist, modernist, and devout chronicler of British life. Recently described by Paul Laity in the Guardian as more popular than ever, Ravilious's watercolours seem to sum up mid-century England. But the secret of their appeal lies partly in their complex relationship with modernism.
