The Precincts,


The years between the wars witnessed a golden age of British landscape painting, as artists took to the road and explored the country. Among the finest of these roving painters were Paul Nash (1889-1946) and his student Eric Ravilious (1903-42), both of whom found inspiration in Kent and Sussex. In this entertaining illustrated talk, James Russell – who curated Dulwich Picture Gallery’s blockbuster Ravilious exhibition last year - will explore the work of both artists, going behind the scenes of some much-loved paintings to tease out stories, introduce characters and revisit the places that inspired them.
