Ravilious and friends at the Towner Gallery
Very serious and impressively put together show. This is as good as it gets when exploring the world of a series of excellent British artists:Ravilious, Bawden, Paul Nash, John Nash, Barnett Freedman, Percy Horton, Tom Hennell, Enid Marx etc. Ravilious came from Eastbourne, hence the link. Quite a few loans from the wonderful Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden.
The draftsmanship of Horton was a revelation to me; why does one see so little of his work in the main London salerooms? Interestingly from a Rothenstein angle was the support a number of the artists got from William Rothenstein at the RCA in the 1920s.
