          Nash was appointed an official war artist for the second time at the outbreak of the Second World War. This picture, with its blood red sky and eerie moon reflects the artist’s embrace of modernism in the inter-war period. With its fractured, broken surface comprising planes of flat colour, Battle of Germany is almost abstract in its composition.

          Artist details

          Paul Nash was fascinated with Britain’s ancient past and spent time in southern England exploring the downs and coastal areas. Equally inspired by the equinox and the phases of the moon, he used all these influences in his work, interpreting his environment according to a unique, personal mythology, evolving throughout his career.
