          Original: Watercolour, ink and graphite on paper 57.5 x 48.2 cm Tate. Purchased 1975 © Tate

          Painted after the artist was temporarily invalided out of the First World War, The Cherry Orchard is one of Nash’s most distinctive and powerful pictures. The rigid arrangement of trees stand like soldiers in formation, their bare trunks and branches giving them an intense vulnerability. The barbed wire-topped fence in the foreground hints at the defensive structures of the front line trenches.

          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.
