Forgotten Ravilious to go on show

(1 of 2) We are delighted to share exciting news that a lost painting of Ravilious, last seen in 1939 is set to be unveiled at Hastings on the 27th May.
This radiant watercolour was for many years thought to be missing, when it was in fact hanging quietly in a collector’s home since 1939.

(2 of 2) Mackerel Sky belongs to a private collector, who very generously loaned it to the exhibition Seaside Modern when hearing of the curators search for Ravilious works.
