Ravilious and Friends: a talk by author and curator Andy Friend

  • 27 June 2017 5:30-7pm

Eric Ravilious was at the centre of one of the most influential networks of English artist designers of the 20th century. Andy Friend, author of Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship and co-curator of the Towner Art Gallery's exhibition of the same name, has spent more than ten years researching the relationships and collaborations within the group, some of whom are well-represented in The Keep’s archives. In this talk, he will discuss the rich vein of new material it revealed. Signed copies of the book, published by Thames & Hudson, will be for sale on the day.

Admission

£10 per person (paid in advance), includes a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink
