‘What is it about Eric Ravilious?’

19:30  7 June 2017           £8

During the past 30 years, the English artist Eric Ravilious has moved from being a marginal figure to one whose name is instantly recognised. Even now, he does not fit the standard narrative of British art or design, which presents a challenge in discovering whether his current popularity is a symptom of something wider. Alan Powers, a tour director for ACE Cultural Tours, curator and author of two books on Ravilious, will explore the varied aspects of the Ravilious boom.

Alan Powers is a British teacher, researcher and writer specialising in architecture and design. Powers trained as an art historian at University of Cambridge, gaining an undergraduate degree and a PhD.
