          Original: Oil paint on canvas, 71.5 x 92 cm Aberdeen Art Gallery © Tate

          Nash loved exploring the ancient landscapes of Dorset; the rolling hills of the downs were an endless source of inspiration and wonder. He was particularly drawn to trees and woods, believing trees to have an innate life force. In this painting, there is a vulnerability to the cluster of trees, their slender stems seemingly seeking strength in numbers as their foliage is whipped by the wind.

          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.
