          Original: Graphite and watercolour on paper 39.4 x 57.8 cm Tate. Presented by the War Artists Advisory Committee 1946 © Tate

          Nash moved to Oxford in 1939, and was appointed an official war artist the following year. He went on to complete a series of watercolour paintings of destroyed German aircraft in the rural fields of Oxfordshire. Nash was concerned to capture the “diverse distinct personalities of these enchanting monsters” and in these disturbing images, the planes are imbued with a sense of interrupted energy and inner life force.

          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.
