Following on from the remarkable Eric Ravilious exhibition at the Dulwich gallery which ended recently, Picture has recreated an authentic look to the framing of a set of limited edition giclee prints (on 310gsm 100% cotton rag) which are all available for sale. We chose to use painted slips (instead of standard bevel cut window mounts) as they evoke a vintage style reminiscent of the 30’s when the original watercolours were painted, and we felt the chalkiness of the gesso frame for ‘Chalk Paths’ suited the subject matter perfectly. The artwork is framed in a hand painted sloped obeche profile which was chosen for its authentic look.
If you weren’t able to catch the exhibition in Dulwich then you can view some of his original artwork at the Towner gallery in Eastbourne which has a permanent collection in the newly opened Ravilious room.
