About this item
Informal Beauty explores the photographic works of Paul Nash (1889–1946), one of the most significant British artists of the 20th century. Best known for his evocative paintings of war-ravaged landscapes and his quasi-Surrealist visions of the English countryside, Nash was also a consummate photographer, who believed that the camera could reveal aspects of the world that the painter could not. Beginning in 1930, he regularly experimented with photography, working with a No. 1A pocket Kodak series 2 camera. Including a highly informative contextual essay by Simon Grant, Informal Beauty explores the experimental nature of Nash’s output and the intensity and power of his photographic vision.
