John Nash (11 April 1893 – 23 September 1977) was an English painter, illustrator, and engraver. Nash was the younger brother of Paul Nash and fought in World War I from 1916 to 1918, working as an official war artist from 1918.
The artist's main business is to train his eye to see,then to probe and then to train his hand to work in sympathy with his eye.
I never look for more than reality,the farming,the trees,the river.I suppose poetry gets in to reality.
In looking at a landscape its abstract features appeal pretty quickly.Although representational I am primarily interested in the structure underneath,though I hope not obviously.
