From the publisher

The acclaimed biography detailing the lives of the British inter-war artists and designers centred on Ravilious – an enthralling narrative of creative achievement, joy and tragedy

In recent years Eric Ravilious has become recognized as one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, whose work captures an essential sense of place and the spirit of mid-century England. What is less appreciated is that he did not work in isolation, but within a much wider network of artists, friends and lovers – Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman, Enid Marx, Tirzah Garwood, Percy Horton, Peggy Angus and Helen Binyon among them. Andy Friend tells the story of this group of artists from their student days through to the Second World War and Ravilious’s untimely death, revealing how they influenced each other and how a shared experience animated their work.

Generously illustrated and drawing on extensive research, Ravilious & Co. is an enthralling narrative of creative achievement, joy and tragedy.
