From the Publisher
Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) is now firmly one of the most popular artists of his period. "Eric Ravilious: Imagined Realities" includes illustrations of many previously unpublished paintings, including a number from private collections, as well as surveying his other artistic activities. The text draws on many letters and other documents, again previously unpublished, and is the most comprehensive account of Ravilious' career ever published. It also attempts to position Ravilious in relation to English art of his time, and more recent critical and cultural issues.
