About the object

Paul Nash (British 1889-1946)- 'A Scarred Battlefield' Oil on canvas, signed 'Paul Nash' and dated 1918, inscribed by hand to stretcher verso 'To my darling Bunty', approx 51x62cm, framed. (illustrated) Provenance: The property of a private family, inherited by the current vendor from his late grandfathers collection. Part of which has been previously sold here at Wright Marshall Fine Art Auctioneers, Knutsford, Cheshire , being two CRW Nevinson (1889-1946) oil paintings, each depicting WWI biplanes- please see lots 1103, 21st May 2013, and lot 1266, 20th January 2015. NB: Paul Nash is widely considered to be the most important war artist of the Great War. As an official war artist, virtually all of Nash's war time work has found its way to the collections of public institutions, and as such it is incredibly rare for works of this type and period to appear on the open market. On 16th November 1917 Nash wrote a letter to his wife Margaret (Bunty) describing 'the most frightful nightmare of a country more conceived by Dante or Poe than by nature, unspeakable, utterly indescribable'. ON THE REVERSE OF THIS PAINTING IS INSCRIBED 'To my darling Bunty'.
