** Please note the Ravilious Room will be closed for a change of display from 23 January – 3 February. It will then be closed from 18 April until late October during our major new Ravilious exhibition and for a period before and after this exhibition. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Towner holds one of the largest public collections of works by Sussex artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Our Ravilious Room is a dedicated space to admire a selection of his finest watercolours, prints and ceramics, explore our comprehensive archive and browse books on the artist.
The room features specially commissioned cabinets to view and enjoy the Ravilious archive. Copies of the wide range of Ravilious books will also be available for you to read.
