Date : 1929

'The Kensington Apartment House' mural by Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) in the Florence Acton Refreshment Room at Morley College, Lambeth North. The mural was part of a scheme for artists arranged by Mrs Hubbard, the Principal, with advice from Sir John Rothenstein. Funding of 1,300 was received in 1928 from Sir Joseph Duveen for murals and Ravilious was commissioned, along with Edward Bawden and Cyril [Charles] Mahoney, to paint the public spaces at the college. The official unveiling was by the Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin in 1930. They became some of the most influential British murals of the time, but were unfortunately destroyed by bombing in the 1940 Blitz.
