Watercolour on paper, 1938.
Even more so than other of Ravilious’s coastal paintings, ‘Rye Harbour’ captures the clarity of early morning seaside light.
A rising sun is reflected in the water below; harbour walls stretch towards an invisible horizon, and a clarity of vision is afforded, so much so that the eye can pick out such details as the wires stretching towards the far off shore.
Giclée Print, limited edition (1/950) on 310gsm thick, 100% cotton rag.
