ANOTHER LIFE, ANOTHER WORLD – Paul Nash: Works on Paper, 1910-1946, Piano Nobile, 129 Portland Road, London W11, until 22nd November 2014
Thanks to an accidental fall into a trench when he was first sent to the Western Front in early 1917, Nash was sent back to the battlefields as a war artist. There he produced some of his great images, particularly in watercolour, a medium in which he was a master. It therefore comes as no surprise that he was a founder member of the Modern English Watercolour Society in 1923.
This very special exhibition, which covers Nash’s war and inter-war years, is drawn from private and public collections and allows us to see works that are not usually exhibited. Many of them are for sale. The accompanying hundred page fully illustrated catalogue (a must purchase) is written by Boyd Haycock and includes unpublished new research which he has garnered from the Tate Archives.
It’s really nice.
