10 World War One Paintings by Paul Nash

Paul Nash (11 May 1889 – 11 July 1946) was a British painter best known for his artisitic representations of World War One and World War Two. Nash grew up in Buckinghamshire and the environment encouraged him to become a landscape painter. He enlisted in 10 September 1914 but was stationed on the home front. By 1916 he had undergone officer training and was sent to the western front. After three months he returned to Britain due to an injured rib. It was at this time he began his war painting, based on sketches he made while serving. This work gained official attention and in November 1917 he returned to the front as an official war artist.
You can see most of these works and more by Paul Nash at Truth and Memory British Art of the First World War at the Imperial War Museum London.
