Eric Ravilious ‘Aldeburgh Bathing Machines’
This is another of the paintings Ravilious produced during his stay in Aldeburgh (see ‘The Lifeboat‘). While all the others are bright, airy and fresh, ‘Aldeburgh Bathing Machines’ makes an unusual addition, with the yellow sand mirrored in the equally granular sky, down through which beams what appears to be a spotlight illuminating the last bathing machines on the left. These machines were growing scarce by the 1930s, having previously been a common fixture to enable the modest bather to change in privacy and not have to walk to far to the water.
