Paul Nash (English, 1889 - 1946)
English artist Nash was born in London. He was an Official War Artist for both the First and Second World Wars, and is well known for his powerful images of No Man's Land, painted during the First World War. Nash produced many paintings of the English countryside, in which he attempted to capture the 'spirit of place'. He saw himself as a successor to Turner and Blake, but influenced by European Modernism. Nash was drawn to the mysterious aspects of the landscape and the timelessness of nature. In 1933 he founded the English modern art movement, Unit One.
