Eric Ravilious
Chalk Paths

From a watercolour on paper (1935). Location: South Downs, Sussex, England. Private collection. Printed at the original size. Ravilious rarely depicts the human form - in fact it is human absence which he often explores. There is evidence almost always - and as in this picture - of the land having been traversed and used: the paths are well trodden, the fences zigzag their way across the terrain. But these man-made things stand in association to the absent walker or farmer; and the lack of actual presences can, perhaps, lend a certain tinge of sadness to what is, otherwise, such poignant beauty.
