This is a critical edition of the art writings of the painter Paul Nash (1889-1946). Alongside the very different Wyndham Lewis, Nash was the only major British artist of his generation who was also a regular critic of, and essayist on, art. He knew and read the leading critics of his day, and evolved a distinctive position in relation to them. His relationship to British modernism and the mutual stimulus of art and criticism, the opening up of his criticism and that of others to poetic and literary influences under the influence of Surrealism is discussed by Andrew Causey. Nash's writings span the years 1919 to 1946, with the majority dating from the 1930s; they were framed by his profession of painting and his activities as an art teacher, a product designer, and his involvement, as organiser and polemicist, in the art world. All of these helped for form the individuality of his writing.

This is a valuable contribution to the study of modernism in Britain ... Causey has made a selection and adds a complete list of [Nash's] published work between 1919 and the posthumous Outline: An Autobiography of 1949. His introduction is exemplary in its thoroughness and sympathetic analysis of the English critical context in which he situates Nash's slim but important contribution. (Burlington Magazine)
This handsome volume of his writings is skilfully selected and illustrated by the leading Nash scholar, Andrew Causey, who also writes an excellent introduction. Would that more artists were able to write as Nash did, either about their own or others' art. (Richard Humphreys, The Times Literary Supplement)
Andrew Causey is Professor of Modern Art History, University of Manchester, and an OUP author.
