Tirzah Garwood @ The Fry Art Gallery
7 April 2019 - 27 October 2019
Mr & Mrs Ravilious, is the Gallery’s main exhibition for 2019, which will be devoted to the work of Eric Ravilious and his wife Tirzah Garwood, two artists whose lives were both prematurely cut short. Eric died in 1942, aged 39, while serving as a war artist; Tirzah (née Garwood) died in 1951, aged 42. Despite this, they have a unique place in 20th century art and the exhibition tells the story of their artistic life together, presenting the parallels in their work and the influence they had on each other’s creativity. In what will be a very insightful and eclectic collection, it will be the first time that the careers and work of Ravilious and Garwood have been seen from this fascinating and intertwined personal perspective. Over 150 items will be on display including watercolours, oils, ceramics, marbled papers, box constructions and wood engravings, together with two fine oil portraits of Eric and Tirzah.
