Bristol was among the various stops on Ravilious’s travels, who followed in the tradition of many artists by journeying to the city to capture the bustling docks and industrial shipyard. It was Paul Nash’s younger brother John who first brought Ravilious here, capturing his friend’s imagination with the old-world charm of the paddle steamers dormant in dock.

A Travelling Artist is the fourth in a series of books documenting Ravilious in Pictures, and will be launched at the RWA on 10 March 2012.
