  • About the artist
    John Nash, painter, wood engraver and illustrator, was born in London. He was the younger brother of British artist, Paul Nash (1889-1946) with whom he shared his first exhibition at the Dorien Leigh Galleries (London, 1913). After serving with the Artists Rifles during the First World War and working as Official War Artist from 1916 to 1918, John Nash became the first art critic of the ‘London Mercury’ magazine in 1919. During the 1920s and 1930s he taught at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford, and the Royal College of Art, London. Although more often associated with landscape painting, Nash was also a prolific book illustrator who specialised in botanical drawing and had developed a great knowledge of plant types since childhood.
