Nocturnal Landscape: Paul and Margaret Nash's Christmas card.

Nocturnal Landscape: Paul and Margaret Nash's Christmas card.

NASH, Paul

Christmas card; 8vo; colour image printed on coated stock laid onto folded wove card. Signed "from Paul & Margaret Nash." by Paul Nash in fountain pen ink beneath a printed greeting. A surreal landscape scene composed of three strange shaped flint-like boulders on a beach, one heart-shaped, one in the form of a large bud on a heavily leaning stem, and one in the form of a limb reaching upwards out of a heavy block. All three cast long, dark blue shadows across the yellow sand to the left. In the background to the left there is a tall, upright, squared grid. To the right there is another group of strange standing stones at the water's edge. Original is now in the Manchester City Art Gallery. Very Good, some light age wear.


Ballard Phantom: Paul and Margaret Nash's Christmas card.

Ballard Phantom: Paul and Margaret Nash's Christmas card.

NASH, Paul

Christmas card; 8vo; colour image printed on coated stock laid onto folded wove card. Signed "from Paul & Margaret Nash." The artist has added 'Something more to follow, love from…' and also added his telephone number ('Hampstead 6446') and his monogram, PN in ink beneath a printed greeting. Swanage in Dorset was one of the key 'places' in Nash's life. His association with it, centred chiefly on the period 1934 to 1936 when he lived in Swanage. During this time he worked on the Dorset volume of the Shell Guide. As well as a great deal of photography Nash also made numerous paintings, drawings and watercolours connected with Swanage and its environs and continued to refer to the area in his work even after he had ceased to live there. During the last ten days of his life he revisited Corfe, Swanage, Worth Matravers and Kimmeridge Bay, and shortly before he died at Boscombe wrote 'Boscombe is next to Bournemouth, Bournemouth is next to Poole and Poole is next to Swanage. And there I am in my kingdom.' Very Good, some light age wear.
