Paul Nash is one of the most important artists of the first half of the twentieth century and the most evocative landscape painter of his generation.

He was also a pioneer of modernism in Britain, promoting abstraction and Surrealism in the 1920s and 1930s.

Nash found his personal inspiration in the English landscape and he saw himself in the tradition of English mystical painters William Blake and Samuel Palmer. He was particularly drawn to landscapes with a sense of ancient history: grassy burial mounds, Iron Age hill forts and the standing stones at Avebury and Stonehenge. For him these sites had the spirit of a place, and he painted them repeatedly.

Long admired as one of the outstanding English Landscape painters of the 20th Century, his works are found in all the major art institutions of Great Britain.
