Nash was appointed an official war artist for the second time in 1940. Although he was no longer affiliated with surrealism at this point, his war time landscapes reflect the continued influence of the movement. This drawing is one of a series he made of crashed German aircraft; he saw the wrecked planes as ‘enchanting monsters’ in the midst of the English countryside.
