Monday hero: Edward Bawden

Edward Bawden (1903-1989) was an English artist who worked in various disciplines: he painted, illustrated for advertising and books, made murals and tiles, and was a graphic artist. He also worked as a war artist in WWII.

Amongst many other things he made a series of drawings for a book called 'Life in an English village', and a series of prints of London markets.

I love the 'everyday aspect' of Bawden's subject matter, and the diversity of his techniques.

His work is often associated with that of his friend and collegue Eric Ravilious, whom I wrote about in an earlier episode.
