Paul Nash at the Laing Art Gallery


With four star reviews including The Guardian, The Times and Time Out London, this exhibition of works by Paul Nash (1889-1946) comes to the Laing Art Gallery from Tate Britain.

The significant exhibition spans Nash’s lifework, from his earliest drawings and the iconic war paintings to his powerfully emotional final landscapes.

The exhibition includes a fascinating array of photographs and surreal objects, assembled as sources of inspiration by Nash and artist Eileen Agar, with whom he collaborated in the 1930s. Nash was a founding member of the British modernist group Unit One in 1933, and participated in the International Surrealist Exhibition of 1936. Pictures by Nash from this key moment in British modernism are on display alongside sculpture and paintings by fellow Unit One artists, including Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Edward Wadsworth.

The exhibition concludes with the evocative landscape paintings that Nash produced in the last decade of his life. In these important pictures, the sun and moon are symbolic presences, and vibrant colour conveys Nash’s emotional response to the landscape.

The exhibition is organised by Tate Britain in association with the Laing Art Gallery and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
