Gwen Raverat (1885-1957) was one of England's greatest wood-engravers and a leading figure in the revival of the art form in the 20th Century. She was the grand-daughter of Charles Darwin, one of Rupert Brooke's Neo-Pagans and Virginia Woolf's Bloomsbury group. Her best-selling memoir, Period Piece is still in print (68 years after its first publication). She has an extensive following with work in galleries, museums and private collections worldwide, with many publications written about her life and work.
