Hardback.  First edition. Ronald Blythe discovered a trunk full of letters in the brick bread oven of John and Christine Nash’s farm after their death. These were the letters that the artists Paul and John Nash, Dora Carrington and Christine Kühlenthal had written to each other since just before the First World War and throughout the 1920s. These four young people met at the Slade School – much the same age, each wonderfully gifted yet troubled and released by the new freedoms of the period. Startling paintings and hilarious sketches accompany these intimate letters. Here is a book about student days, the Western Front, friendship and courtship and the real passion which all four shared – a love of landscape. Condition: very good
