          Nash and his wife moved to Iden near Rye in Sussex in 1925, where he proceeded to make numerous paintings of the local landscape. This picture demonstrates Nash’s unique ability to fuse quintessential British landscape with the ideas of modernism. With its sharp angles and strong geometry, the composition reveals the influence of vorticism on the artist.

          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.
