Raverat, Jacques (1885-1925) by Scholes, Robert

Jacques Raverat (1885 – 1925) He was born in France and started school there but transferred to the Bedales School in England in 1898. From there he went to Cambridge, where he met Gwen Darwin , whom he later married. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and much of his short life was made difficult and painful by his ill health. He had some ability as a painter, but has been eclipsed by the work of his wife, who became an important artist in the field of engravings and woodcuts.
