          One of Nash’s most overtly surrealist paintings, Landscape from a Dream reflects his fascination with Freud’s theories on the power of dreams. Despite being full of the kind of visually striking symbolic imagery deployed by European surrealists – such as the spheres which refer to the soul – its setting on the Dorset coast makes it quintessentially English.

          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.
