Nash developed his own unique take on surrealism during the 1930s, fusing British tradition with European modernism. He was influenced by Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico’s paintings of people-less piazzas and strange disorienting architecture. In Mansions of the Dead, Nash interprets a seventeenth century essay on death and immortality by Thomas Browne as a dreamlike scene with birds ascending into a geometric grid like structure.
