GWEN RAVERAT ###SOLD OUT###
3pm
Court Barn Museum
£7 (30 places only)

William Pryor’s illustrated talk on his grandmother, Gwen Raverat: her memoirs; the books she illustrated; her close relationships with other literary greats including Virginia Woolf, Rupert Brooke and, her cousin, Frances Cornford. Gwen Raverat, pioneer of modern wood engraving and printmaking, was one of the foremost miniaturists of her generation, enjoying international acclaim and helping to found the Society of Wood Engravers. Gwen was a  granddaughter of Charles Darwin and a member of both the Neo-Pagans and the Bloomsbury Group. Her bestselling memoir Period Piece: A Cambridge Childhood has never been out of print since it was first published in 1952. Two new editions were published in 2014.
 William Pryor, author of Virginia Woolf and the Raverats (2003), manages the Raverat Archive: the definitive online collection of Gwen’s remaining original artworks. Visit www.raverat.com to browse the library.
With thanks to Court Barn Museum. Summer opening: Tues – Sun 10am – 5pm
