My sister-in-law Cindy sent me a frustrated email after visiting an exhibit of Nash’s work at the Tate in London. She couldn’t understand what was so great about it. She read all the tags beside each piece but remained unclear about why the work was there.
Nash is considered by art critics to be one of England’s great landscape painters…alongside Constable!
While I find the work dark and depressing…I am always impressed by what an anti war statement it makes. Nash said, “I am no longer an artist, I am a messenger to those who want the war to go on forever …and may it burn their lousy souls.”
