Book Description

10 Oct 2011
'Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape and Dream' celebrates the life and work of Paul Nash (1889-1946), an artist of energy and vision who created iconic paintings of both world wars and explored in inimitable style the ideas and issues of the interwar years. After a period of neglect following his death, Nash's reputation is in the ascendant again, but though we appreciate the quality of his paintings, we have perhaps lost sight of their humanity.

Bringing a fresh eye to the artist's legacy, 'Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape and Dream' goes behind the scenes of twenty-two paintings to explore Nash's life, the places and people he knew, and the times in which he lived. The book draws on diverse sources, from published books to correspondence, to create an intimate portrait of a passionate, funny, supremely imaginative artist.

In this, the first of two proposed books on Nash, we focus on the artist's oil paintings - the work in which he explored most thoroughly the ideas that preoccupied him. Well-known paintings like `The Battle of Britain' are included alongside pictures that are reproduced for the first time. A second volume will address the artist's watercolours, so that the two books together form a unique biography of Paul Nash - a life in pictures.

More About the Author

James Russell writes and lectures about 20th century British art, particularly mid-century landscape painting and design. His four-volume series 'Ravilious in Pictures' (Mainstone Press) celebrates the life and work of English designer, printmaker and watercolourist Eric Ravilious (1903-42), exploring the stories and characters concealed behind his mesmerizing paintings. James has travelled far and wide both to research the books and to give talks on the subject, and has enjoyed every minute; you can find descriptions of his travels, photos and other fascinating stuff on his blog, jamesrussellontheweb.blogspot.com.

In other news, James's book 'Edward Seago' (1910-74) examines both the life and work of the artist best known for his paintings of Norfolk landscapes and friendship with various members of the Royal family. Readers may be surprised to see wonderful paintings and drawings of diverse subjects, from travelling circuses to 1960s Hong Kong.

Even fuller of surprises is 'Peggy Angus: Designer, Teacher, Painter', which accompanies an exhibition at Towner, Eastbourne this summer (July-Sept 2014). A fellow student of Ravilious, Bawden and co. at the RCA, Peggy Angus (1904-93) lived according to her deeply felt philosophy that art should be an integral part of life. A childhood in Chile and visits to Soviet Russia played a crucial role in her development, making her story, among other things, a classic 20th century life.

A father of two, James plays guitar in one of South Bristol's more adventurous indie covers bands, and may be found in the autumn months gathering apples for cidermaking - see 'The Naked Guide to Cider' for further details.

Top quality reproductions of Nash's paintings, and writing which really draws you into the mind of this fascinating artist. The sort of book I keep picking up to have another look at!

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 22 Jan 2012
This is a beautifully produced, scholarly and affordable book which can be recommended to anyone with an interest in twentieth century British art. The images include several unfamiliar works, and the reproductions are some of the best I have seen. We are promised further volumes on other aspects of Nash's work: good news.
