Reviews

‘The film makes a case that Ravilious should be regarded, alongside the likes of Turner and Constable, as one of Britain’s great landscape artists.’
★★★★
Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘This fine overview does convince you of his singularity, while also coaxing you into the sunlit, subtly clouded uplands of his lost world.’
★★★★
Tim Robey, the Telegraph
