Following the sell-out 2014 publication `Paul Nash: Watercolours 1910 – 1946′ this revised and expanded edition has been published to coincide with an exhibition of Paul Nash’s work in New York, May 2019. The fully illustrated catalogue includes major oils as well as watercolours, prints and photographs and examines one of Britain’s most acclaimed artists of the twentieth century. Written by David Boyd Haycock, author of ‘Paul Nash’ (Tate Publishing, 2002) and the hugely successful ‘A Crisis of Brilliance’ (Old Street Publishing, 2009), the catalogue charts the whole of Nash’s career from his early days before studying at the Slade School of Art, through to his time at the Western Front during World War I as a serving officer and then an official War Artist, and to his mature Surrealist-era works.
In this centenary year that marks the official end to the First World War, the publication reflects on Nash’s unprecedented impact on British Art and the lingering contemporary power of his works today. This selection of works is drawn from major museum and private collections, and includes several hitherto unseen works, spanning all the major genres and themes present in Nash’s diverse career.
