Paddle Steamers, Bristol Quay
|Title||Paddle Steamers, Bristol Quay|
|Paper Size (W x H)||24 x 21 ins|
Bristol is a major port in the West of England and paddle steamers were also known as riverboats, powered by a steam engine that drives paddle wheels to propel the craft through the water. Ravilious would take somewhat mundane subjects and this picture highlights his ability to imbue the ordinary with a touch of the sublime and to catch the strange beauty of a mundane item.
The print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and bearing a matching number to the print.
