One of ten famous lithographs known collectively
as The Submarine Series. Initially commissioned by the War Artist’s
Committee in 1940, but then rejected by them leaving Ravilious free to
experiment and depict as he pleased. And Ravilious enjoyed this project:
the scene in the interiors, he writes, is “extraordinarily good…There
are small coloured lights about the place and the complexity of a Swiss
clock”. (Ravilious to E. M. O’Rourke Dickey, 2nd Aug 1940; from
correspondence held at the Imperial War Museum). This is printed to the
original size of the lithograph. (The purchase of two or more in the
Submarine Series attracts a 10% discount).
Size: 28 x 32cm; incl. border: 45.7 x 49.7cm
Format: Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/950) on 310gsm thick 100% cotton rag. Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.
