      Event: Paul Nash at Tate Britain 2016/17

      Location: Tate Britain, SW1

      Paul Nash was one of the most important British artists of the first part of the 20th century, whose paintings of the ruined landscapes of First World War battlefields show a bitter reflection on the horrors of the war.

      This is the first major retrospective on the artist in a generation, showing his early Symbolist work through the First World War, and his landscapes of the interwar period in which he moved towards Surrealism. He was appointed as an official war artist for both the two world wars.
