Written by Andrew Lambirth. 352 pages, over 350 colour illustrations. Special edition limited to 120 cloth covered hardbacks numbered and signed by Andrew Lambirth with folder containing 3 wood engravings from the original blocks all housed in a slipcase.

Andrew Lambirth’s book is the first full-length monograph to deal with all aspects of John Nash’s career, showing us the wealth of work hidden in both public and private collections. Few realise that it was John Nash who pioneered the new approach to landscape painting associated with Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious. Nash taught and inspired them both, but their recent popularity has rather obscured his own contribution. As interest in the masters of 20th-century British painting continues to build, there is a real need for reassessment of his life’s work. John Nash: Artist and Countryman attempts just this.

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.
