Tirzah Garwood: Beyond Ravilious

July 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£12

James Russell, who is no stranger to our Festival, is delighted to be presenting his lecture on the remarkable artist Tirzah Garwood who was born in Kent in 1908 and attended the Eastbourne School of Art 1925-1928 where she met Eric Ravilious.

Tirzah moved to London in 1928 and studied at the Central School of Art but, following her marriage to Eric in 1930, gave up her art to raise their children and support Eric with his career. Thankfully, Tirzah’s work is now gaining the recognition it deserves. Already a skilled wood engraver, she also made exquisite decorative papers using a marbling technique that was all her own and went on to create a series of compelling house constructions or dioramas and hauntingly beautiful oil paintings before she died in 1951.

James Russell is an art historian, curator and author and is currently putting together the first major exhibition devoted to Tirzah Garwood’s art in over 70 years. “Tirzah Garwood: Beyond Ravilious” opens at Dulwich Picture Gallery this November.
