Tate British Artists: Paul Nash

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, 2002 - Art - 80 pages
As a painter, illustrator and critic, Paul Nash (1889-1946) was at the forefront of British art in the first half of the twentieth century. Inspired by Willam Blake, Samuel Palmer and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he produced some of the greatest paintings of the First and Second World Wars. In the intervening years he helped introduce the British avant-garde to the thrilling potential of European modernism, experimenting with abstraction and helping to establish the Surrealist movement in Britain. In this thoughtful and comprehensive survey, David Boyd Haycock explores the full course of Nash's eventful career, his profound love of the English landscape, and the psychological forces that led him to pursue a lifelong vision of flight.
