David Dawson, Director of Wiltshire Museum in Devizes will be talking about the Eric Ravilious exhibition entitled ‘Downland Man’ and opening on 25 September.
‘An exhibition exploring for the first time, Eric Ravilious’s (1903-1942) fascination for the chalk downlands of Wiltshire and Sussex.’
‘For the very first time Wiltshire Museum will be borrowing over 20 artworks from major National Museums to bring an international standard art exhibition to the County. The show will appeal to art lovers across the country and to local people who love the iconic local landscapes. We have confirmed important loans from Tate and V&A as well as private lenders. We are also liaising with the Imperial War Museum, British Museum, National Museum of Wales and the prestigious Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, as well as private lenders, to secure a significant range of evocative watercolours for the display.’
The exhibition is curated by James Russell who many of you will remember curated the 2015 Ravilious exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery: https://friendsofsmag.blogspot.com/2015/07/ravilious-at-dulwich-picture-gallery-on.html
