          One of the most iconic images of the First World War, We Are Making a New World depicts the devastation of the battlefields of northern France. Nash was profoundly affected by his experiences as an official war artist, witnessing unimaginable horrors in the trenches. This nightmarish vision of weak rays of sun rising over a sickening landscape is a powerful statement on the tragic destruction of war.

          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.
