Eric Ravilious Limited Edition Print

It is not often that an unseen painting comes out of hiding,
well, not when it is by Eric Ravilious.
"Lombardy Poplars" is a watercolour painted by Ravilious in 1935, and has been in private ownership until now.
From now on the painting will be held in the Towner Collection in Eastbourne which will be housed in Eastbourne's new art gallery, due to open summer 2008. In support of Eastbourne's new art gallery the Ravilious family have given special permission for the watercolour to be produced in a limited edition reproduction print of 500. All proceeds from sales of the print will go to the fundraising for the new art gallery.
To have your own "Lombardy Poplars" and support this exciting new art gallery for Sussex please see: or tel. 01323 413555

Working class heroes

On the hunt for a birthday present for my young man, I came across this Austrian based company,

At first I was drawn to the grey felt which brought the nostalgia of dark bars in Berlin wintertime, but I really love the whole package of their calm, ordered site and blog, use of found materials and imagery create a wonderful atmosphere.

All that from a website!!
