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.
