Paperback.  First edition.  Limited to 1000 copies.  ‘The evocation of place, its sense, is both geographical and mythic in the works of Paul Nash and Edward Burra.  They have extracted from certain situations the mood and rhythm of “the there, there” (to paraphrase Gertrude Stein).  Although both Burra and Nash were acquainted with each other and corresponded, the images depicted by each are quite dissimilar.  The exception is the intrusion of man, who habitually destroys and litters with metal and machines the countryside of Nash and the urban landscape of Burra’.   Superb essays by Bryan Robertson and Andrew Causey.  Condition: covers a little scuffed and lightly edge-worn, otherwise very good.
