Eric Ravilious - Paddle Steamers, Bristol Quay

Eric Ravilious - Paddle Steamers, Bristol Quay

£220.00

Watercolour on paper, 1938. Ravilious was good friends with John Nash (see Nash Biography and Prints) and together the two went on painting excursions, to Essex and the surrounding countryside; around Nash’s Buckinghamshire home, and also, at Nash’s suggestion, to Bristol. Here both artists painted and sketched the paddle steamers operated by P&A Campbell in the summer, but moored for the winter in Bristol. The Paddle Steamer ‘Britannia’ (which Ravilious misspells here as ‘Brittania’) worked the route from the Devon port of Ilfracombe to Weston-super-Mare and still holds the Bristol Channel speed record of 1 hour 56 minutes for a journey by paddle steamer between these ports.
