PAUL NASH: THE MASTER OF THE IMAGE, 1889-1946., Eates, Margot.

Author Name    Eates, Margot.

Title   PAUL NASH: THE MASTER OF THE IMAGE, 1889-1946.

Publisher    John Murray, London, 1973.

Seller ID   25125

156 pp, 4to (11 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w and colour reproductions, b&w photographs. "Paul Nash was always a leading and often a controversial figure in modern English art. His complete integrity of vision, his sturdy individualism and his remarkable ability to evoke the indwelling spirit of his subject - a quiet woodland scene, a menacing prehistoric site, a strange 'objet trouve' or 'monster' bombers on the ground or in the air - set him somewhat apart from his contemporarie s. In its later phases his work was marked by a degree of intuitive vision which may well explain why he never adhered closely to any school or sought to found one himself. Despite this apparent isolation, or perhaps even because of it, his co n t r i bution to the art of the twentieth century was both vital and unique. No full scale study of his life and work has appeared for nearly twenty years and the Paul Nash Trustees felt that the time had come for a reappraisal of his achievement. Th ey a ccordingly invited Margot Eates, who had edited the 'Paul Nash Memorial Volume' and knew him well towards the end of his life to undertake this new, fully illustrated monograph. In it she traces Paul Nash's artistic development in relatio n to hi s b ackground and personality, and in a long appendix has attempted the difficult task of producing a workable chronology covering over one thousand of his recorded paintings and drawings." Slight musty odor to pages, small light dust mar k on b otto m of text block, a few tiny light marks on top of textblock, small heavy dent on front board - migrates lightly into first few pages. Dust jacket has light wrinkling on spine and parts of rear panel, small closed perforation on front p an el, l ight edge wrinkling at top edge, light wear/wrinkling with tiny tears/chips at top of hinges and flap-folds, rear panel color has light to moderate fading, slight browning and soiling. Very Good-/Very Good-
