The Waterwheel By Eric Ravilious
Watercolour on paper, 1938.
Printed to original size.
A further example – see Chalk Paths – of Ravilious’ fascination with the working landscape wherein the worker is referenced not by being present in the picture himself, but by the tools or implements with which he works.
In Chalk Paths the fences zigzag their way across the countryside; here a waterwheel is centrally placed.
This is an image of attractive pastoral theme: geese swim a stream and the sun casts a gentle light over the blues and browns of the landscape.
Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/850) on 310 gsm thick, 100% cotton rag.
Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.
