One of Nash’s most celebrated paintings, Totes Meer depicts the wreckage of German aircraft in an Oxfordshire field. The title is German for ‘dead sea’, and the image reflects Nash’s vision of the broken planes as a great sea “rearing up and crashing on the plain”. He felt there was a “persistent suggestion of a ghostly presence […] baffled yet malign” among the abandoned aircraft.
