We’re delighted to feature in the March edition of Elle Decoration, the world’s leading homes magazine! The article, titled ‘Design Hero Eric Ravilious’, is a spotlight on the British designer, painter, wood-engraver and printer, Eric Ravilious.
Elle Decoration explores the question ‘what makes Eric Ravilious a design hero?’ The article highlights his prestigious ‘Celebration’ mug manufactured by Wedgewood for the coronation of King Edward VII in 1926 and his work as a war artist in the last few years of his life, but it concludes, “it is perhaps his watercolours – of landmarks such as Beachy Head, Rye Harbour and the ‘chalk figures’ of the South Downs – for which he is best remembered.”
Our extensive collection of Eric Ravilious works includes several fine examples of his elegant landscapes, as well as his astute depictions of the World War II, and even a limited edition giclée print of Eric Ravilious' alphabet designs which Wedgwood transfer printed on mugs in 1937. It’s great feature in Elle Decoration and lovely to see that one of our favourite 20th century artists is continuing to receive the admiration he deserves!
