'thorough and tremendously powerful' - The Evening Standard
Paul Nash was a British surrealist painting as well as a photographer, writer and designer of applied art. He is also known for his work as official war artist and produced dome of the most memorable images of the First and Second World Wars.
This catalogue, published for the 2016 Tate's exhibition - the largest Nash show in a generation - features works from across four decades of his rich career and is the first book to examine Nash's work in an international context and his work promoting the avant-garde styles of abstraction and surrealism in the 1920s and 1930s.
The richly illustrated book traces Nash's response to the British countryside, the evolving importance of motifs and his engagement with surrealism and abstraction. Alongside beautiful reproductions of his works, there is a wealth of archival material and provides a timely survey of a significant artist.
