News In Brief

Eric Ravilious, Fairey Battle (1942), last seen in 1963, whereabouts now unknown.

Plea to track down lost Ravilious work

An appeal to find the ‘lost’ watercolours of modern British artist Eric Ravilious (1903-42) has been launched.

The call comes as work commences on a definitive catalogue of Ravilious’ watercolours. Around 250 are known already but some 40 are believed to be still undiscovered and uncatalogued.

“They might be held in private collections – even, possibly, public collections – in the UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand,” says James Russell, who curated the exhibition of Ravilious’ watercolours at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2015. He is now compiling the catalogue, authorised by the artist’s estate, published by the Hedingham Press in 2019.
