Newhaven Harbour by Eric Ravilious was originally produced in 1937 as part of the Contemporary Lithographs programme. This new limited edition print from the Mainstone Press is part of an edition of 500 hand numbered copies.
Eric Ravlious - painter, wood engraver, lithographer and designer - is one of the finest British artists of the 20th century. He grew up in Eastbourne, East Sussex and the landscape of the surrounding South Downs remained a source of constant inspiration in his work. He studied under Paul Nash and was great friends with artist Edward Bawden. In the 1930’s he was a leading exponent of wood-engraving and also designed a range of ceramics for Wedgwood that are still in demand today. An official War Artist in World War Two, he was killed in a Royal Air Force air-sea rescue mission in 1942. Towner is the custodian of the broadest and most significant collection of works by Ravilious in the world.
