Eric William Ravilious (22 July 1903 – 2 September 1942) was an English painter, designer, book illustrator and wood engraver. Ravilious was inspired by the Sussex Downs. He wrote: "The Downs shaped my whole outlook and way of painting because the colour of the landscape was so lovely and the design so beautifully obvious." He became an Official War Artist during WWII and was killed on a rescue mission in the North Atlantic.
