Published to accompany Piano Nobile's exhibition Paul Nash: Watercolours 1910-1946 Another Life Another World, this fully illustrated catalogue showcases the watercolours of Paul Nash (1889-1946), one of the most significant British artists of the twentieth-century. Written by David Boyd Haycock, author of Paul Nash (Tate Publishing, 2002) and the hugely successful A Crisis of Brilliance (Old Street Publishing, 2009), the catalogue charts Nash's career as a watercolourist from his early days before studying at the Slade School of Art, through to his time at the Western Front during World War I as a serving officer and then an official War Artist, and to his mature Surrealist-era works.
Nash began his career in watercolours, and was drawn to the medium throughout his life, executing some of his most major and iconic works in watercolour. This selection of watercolours is drawn from major museum and private collections, and includes several hitherto unseen works, spanning all the major genres and themes present in Nash's career.
