A visit to The Dulwich Picture Gallery is always a lovely day out. First we had a delicious lunch in Rocca – a very good Italian bistro then on to a very interesting exhibition of Edward Bawden’s work. He became a close friend of Eric Ravilious  when starting as a student at the Royal College of Art and there are a great many similarities between the style of the two artists. I love the way of using pattern on pattern and the simplification of the composition.

 

Bawden’s portraits are very expressive – I particularly liked the ones done during his time as a war artist.
