The Ravilious Rivers and Ponds Collection features River Thames at Hammersmith, Cuckmere Haven, and Newt Pond. These three watercolours bring to life three very different aquatic environments – the wide, deep river Thames, the wonderful oxbow river at Cuckmere Haven, and the mirror-like ‘Newt Pond’. The first is one of his few illustrations of the capital, where-as Cuckmere Haven in Sussex, and the Newt Pond in Great Bardfield, depict territories which influenced his art enormously.
Eric Ravilious (22 July 1903 – 2 September 1942) was an exceptional watercolourist, wood engraver and designer. He was born in the shadow of the Sussex Downs in the coastal town of Eastbourne, the surrounding landscape of which heavily influenced many of his best known works. His instantly recognisable style, palette and choice of subject have an almost universal appeal, a blend which has increased in popularity with the passing of time, particularly in the first two decades of the 21st century.
