Poet in paint: the art and life of Paul Nash - by David Boyd Haycock - Sold out

  • The Barn at Chilton |
  • Lecture |
  • Wednesday, 2 November 2016 - 10:30 until 12:00

As one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, Paul Nash successfully united the romantic tradition with modern European movements such as Futurism, Surrealism and Abstraction. To coincide with a major retrospective of the artist’s work at Tate Britain in the autumn, this lecture will explore Nash’s career from his artistic education at the Slade School of Art to his experiences as an official war artist in both World Wars. David Boyd Haycock, a writer, curator and lecturer specialising in British art and culture of the early 20th century, is the author of several books about Nash. His latest publication, a new edition of Nash’s autobiography, Outline, is due to be released to coincide with the Tate exhibition. Nash grew up in Buckinghamshire, where he developed a love of the English landscape that was to become a main feature of his art. It is therefore fitting that the lecture will be held in Chilton Barn, a splendid 18th century vaulted barn conversion with stunning views over rural Buckinghamshire.
