Nash was among the most important landscape artists of the first half of the twentieth century. He played a key role in the development of Modernism in English art. Born in London, Nash grew up in Buckinghamshire where he developed a love of the landscape. He entered the Slade School of Art but was poor at figure drawing and concentrated on landscape painting.

Paul Nash: Master of the Image, 1889-1946. Great price, dispatched very quickly. I received a 1948 reprint of the original book (first print 1944), which was in great condition for it's age. Nice to have a piece of history from the time when Paul Nash was active. The colour illustrations are still vibrant, and though the pages have been turned, the book has been well looked after. Bargain from a great seller.

Paul Nash was born in Kensington, London in 1889. He was the son of barrister, William Henry Nash and of navy captain's daughter, Caroline Nash. He was the eldest child, and brother to John (also to become a very accomplished and well-known artist) and Barbara. When Nash had recovered his broken ribs and returned to the front to glean images of the conflict, his experience changed entirely and he no longer felt an invigorated sense of purpose. This time round, Nash was frequently subject to shelling and heavy bombardment and started to describe the war as "unspeakable, godless, hopeless".

Paul Nash (11 May 1889 – 11 July 1946) was a British surrealist painter and war artist, as well as a book-illustrator, writer and designer of applied art. He was the older brother of the artist John Nash. His patterns still inspire contemporary design, and are used in a variety of ways, including on packaging. The son of a successful lawyer and a mentally unstable mother who died in a mental asylum in 1910, Nash was born in London on 11 May 1889.

Many of Paul Nash's last works were landscapes featuring the Wittenham .

Many of Paul Nash's last works were landscapes featuring the Wittenham Clumps, two wooded hills in south Oxfordshire. They held a mystical association for him that dated back to his childhood. Nash painted three versions of this view of the Wittenham Clumps from Boars Hill. Nash was reading ‘The Golden Bough’ by Sir James Frazer, a book which explores the ancient custom of rolling fire-wheels downhill in Midsummer to represent the lowering of the sun in the sky. Instead of dwelling inwardly on his situation, Nash turned the idea of death into a magnificent celebration.
