Eric Ravilious was only 39 when he died in 1942  on active service as a war artist yet he had already achieved amazing things. A brilliant wood engraver and designer he is best remembered today for his haunting watercolours. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th. century.

James is an independent art historian and curator with a leaning towards 20th.century British Art and Design.

Members who joined the last society holiday to London will recall the Eric Ravilious exhibition at The Dulwich Picure Gallery.
