  • About the artist
    Joseph Nash was born at Great Marlow; the son of a clergyman. He was a pupil of Augustus Charles Pugin, with whom he travelled to Paris in 1829 to make drawings for ‘Paris and its Environs’ (1830). He also lithographed plates for Pugin's ‘Views Illustrative of Examples of Gothic Architecture’ (1830), ‘Architecture of the Middle Ages’ (1838) and ‘The Mansions of England in the Olden Times’ (1839-49). He exhibited from 1831 to 1879, chiefly at the British Institution, the Old Watercolour Society and the New Watercolour Society. His exhibits included architectural subjects and designs from Shakespeare, Scott and Cervantes. His most typical works are interiors of Tudor or Elizabethan mansions peopled with figures. He died at 69, in Kensington.
