Paul Nash, landscapes with moon

Photobucket

Pillar and Moon, 1932. These are out of period but utterly timeless. Nash expresses something about the more mysterious aspects of the English landscape that one finds in no other artist apart, perhaps, from Samuel Palmer. Aspects of the countryside that are being progressively destroyed, in no small part because England is becoming so overcrowded (apparently four times the population density of France, and concentrated too in the South), so I find these as sad as they are beautiful, though similar scenes can still be found in my own area.
