Picture has recently had the privilege of undertaking the framing of a full set of ten lithographs by Eric Ravilious entitled ‘Submarine Dream’.
Eric Ravilious drew these lithographs in 1941 during his time as an Official War Artist. Complete sets are held in public collections but are extremely rare in private hands.
Impressions of six of the lithographs are currently on display at the Eric Ravilious exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery which goes on until 31 August 2015.
The lithographs have been laid onto museum board and mounted under Bainbridge Alpharag Artcare board which is 100% cotton and utilises micro chamber technology to filter out harmful pollutants.
They are framed in a 15mm Gothic oak profile, handfinished with a mahogany stain and clear wax finish.
The glazing is True Vue Museum glass which has a low reflect optical coating with less than 1% light reflection, and a conservation grade UV coating that blocks 99% of UV light. With over 97% light transmission the colours have optimum clarity.
The Submarine Lithographs will be on display this week at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly which starts tomorrow, Thursday 23rd April 2015, until Sunday 26 April 2015.
You can view them at Jennings Fine Art (Stand 30).
