These exquisite John Nash prints have been printed from the original wood blocks in our very own Goldmark Atelier.

For a span of two decades, Nash was probably the most competent wood engraver working in this country. As an independent printmaker and illustrator he was responsible for dozens of celebrated publications.br />
The Goldmark Gallery has acquired directly from the artist’s estate over 70 of the 90 or so blocks Nash made in his lifetime, with permission to print new editions from them. Many of these blocks were commissioned solely for book illustration and have never been individually editioned; some have never been published at all.br />
The wood blocks have been treated with consummate skill and professionalism by master printer Jan Wilkinson of the Goldmark Atelier. Her standards have been exacting: some of the very faintest of Nash’s cuts have never been printed so crisply before – including those printed by Nash himself.br />
All prints editioned by Goldmark bear the Goldmark Atelier blind stamp (bottom left) and a stamped John Nash signature.
John Nash PortraitBorn in 1893, John Nash established his artistic reputation as a printmaker at a young age with the progressive London Group and Camden Town Group of artists immediately before the Great War. He was an Official War Artist, and thus it was only in 1919 after the war had ended that his first prints, some of them wood engravings, were produced.

The following year he was a founder member of the Society of Wood Engravers and during the next 15 years he produced approximately 135 wood engravings before abandoning the medium. However Nash continued to make prints in different media including lithographs, etchings and engravings on metal, his subject matter often rural landscapes. Nash died in 1977.
