John Nash: The Landscape of Love and Solace – Andy Friend
John Nash chose to title himself an “artist-plantsman” and in this thoroughly researched book Andy Friend gives a biography of Nash where his relationship with the natural world is front and centre. Nash was a highly versatile artist who made some of the most iconic paintings of the First World War. Held in high regard by fellow painters from the Edwardian era to the 1970s he has been somewhat overlooked since.
Drawing on extensive research and beautifully illustrated, this biography is the first comprehensive picture of John Nash and his work an offers a compelling narrative, embracing love, tragedy and the pursuit of solace.
The foreword is written by David Dimbleby and the book is published in association with the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne who have curated a touring exhibition of Nash’s work.
