Publisher: Piano Nobile Publications
Dimensions: 28.8 x 24.8 x 2cm
Following Piano Nobile’s sell-out 2014 publication Paul Nash: Watercolours 1910 – 1946, this expanded edition includes new works including oil paintings, prints and photographs, and an extensively reworked text by David Boyd Haycock. Paul Nash: Another Life, Another World is published to coincide with the first dedicated display of Paul Nash’s work in New York, to be held in May 2019. Nash was the leading British modernist of his day and this catalogue presents a varied selection of his work.
David Boyd Haycock is the acclaimed author of Paul Nash (Tate Publishing, 2002) and A Crisis of Brilliance (Old Street Publishing, 2009). In this catalogue, Haycock charts the whole of Nash's career from his early days before studying at the Slade School of Art, through to his time on the Western Front during the First World War. Having won success as an Official War Artist, Nash later remade himself as a landscape artist of sights in Dymchurch, Kent, and later as an arch-modernist, as the unifying force behind Unit One.
Following recent exhibitions at Tate Britain (2016) and the Fondation Van Gogh, Arles (2018), this book will show the many sides to Nash’s work. 2019 marks one-hundred years since the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, the event which marked the official end to the First World War. With previously unseen war work, as well as some of Nash’s most adventurous modernist output from the 1920s and 1930s, the publication will present the artist as both a witness to history and a powerful creative mind whose efforts are still resonant today.
