2010: Paul Nash
10 February 2010 - 9 May 2010
“Totes Meer – mangled metal torsos of crashed bombers forming an iron sea, seen by queasy moonlight – is the greatest English painting of the second world war.” The Financial Times.
Paul Nash (1889 – 1946) painted beautiful landscapes of the Downs, strange flooded rooms, and classic images of two World Wars. The exhibition includes paintings, watercolours and photographs from the whole of his career, showing how he selected elementary objects, to put them in relationships of conflict or harmony, and found pathways, nests and thresholds between them and within them
