I was there in June and loved this exhibition. There's just so much to see in these paintings. I was tempted to buy the catalogue and I'm very pleased that I did. I have it open in the kitchen, leave it for a few days and then turn to another fascinating picture.

I loved it, too, Claire. We bought the Sussex book rather than the full catalogue, but I think I'll get the latter as well.

Do go and see the marvellous Barbara Hepworth at Tate Britain when you are next in London; absolutely fabulous!

I too went to the Ravilious exhibition recently and absolutely loved it. You are completely correct in your observation that Ravilious 'draws you in' with his paintings. There is a real intimacy about them that is very appealing. A once in a lifetime opportunity I felt and worth the effort from Edinburgh! Barbara Hepworth is also on my radar - just planning my escape!

You've got to love a gallery with a mulberry tree!

We were invited to a birthday party there a few weeks ago but arrived too late to see the pictures sadly. It's a lovely place and it was a good party but I was sorry not to see Ravilious. Lovely to see these pics.

Loved the exhibition too. I live close to "Ravilious country" in East Sussex. Often when out walking, especially in the winter I look at the countryside around me, thinking "Ravilious fields", His use of light was amazing. It captured the beautiful bare folds of the Downs in a way so unique.

Lovely - the soothing colours, light and especially, the geometry, of Ravilious' style. I may well see if the catalogue is available!
There's something solid and slightly naïve about the style that I like, reminding me I enjoy Brian Cook Batsford's illustrations, too, though this is more ethereal at the same time. Time for more investigation.

Outstanding exhibition.....
