Tirzah 13

Betty¬†1927, Robert Harling, when commissioned to write a book about Eric Ravilious’s wood engravings, ‘ came across work by Tirzah and began to realise how talented she was in her own right. Her wood engravings were technically assured, clearly and cleanly incised, with her chosen subjects, like herself, unpredictable, delightful, mildly dotty’ (The Wood Engravings of Tirzah Ravilious 1987).
