In this second talk, lecturer Peter Scott will explore the work of Ravilious’ closest friend and collaborator, Edward Bawden (1903-1989). The two artists met at the Royal College of Art and together, they pioneered a new delicate and definitive method of painting in watercolour. While Ravilious’ life was cut tragically short, Bawden enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a graphic designer, war artist, printmaker, teacher and patron of the arts. When he died at the age of 86, a retrospective exhibition of his work had just opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Although he was outwardly reserved and modest, his work shows he had a keen sense of humour and love of life.
