Eric Ravilious, ‘Submarine Dream’, Fine Art Print
This print is a lithograph not a Giclee print. It was printed by the Camberwell Press in 1996*. These Camberwell Press prints were Stochastically screened from the original 1940 prints from W. S. Cowell of Ipswich.
Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) was appointed as an official war artist at the end of 1939. He developed his original set of lithographs from the drawings and photographs he made at the submarine base at HMS Dolphin in Gosport, England. He originally wanted to publish the images as a children’s book. However, the project was abandoned by the War Artists’ Committee because of costs. Ravilious then decided to publish them himself as a set of lithographs with the help of master-printers W. S. Cowell in Ipswich, England.
The original 1940 ‘Ipswich’ prints are extremely rare. These Camberwell prints are scarce and of very high quality*.
Image size: 27.7 cm (h) x 32cm (w).

Please note*. It states on the British Council website that Camberwell Press printed an album of ten lithographs by Eric Ravilious. Published 1996 by The Camberwell Press in an edition of 300, with 75 copies printed with separate lithographs. We believe that this print is from that series.
