I’ve previously written about the artist Eric Ravilious on my blog, so I have been very excited to read about an upcoming exhibition at Towner in Eastbourne. The exhibition focusses on fellow artist, and good friend of Eric Ravilious, John Nash. Called John Nash: The Landscape of Love and Solace, the exhibition is the most comprehensive major exhibition of Nash’s work in over 50 years.
As well as showing works by Nash himself, apparently the exhibition will also contextualise his life and work, taking a look at his place amongst twentieth century history. It will also look at his relationships – including with Dora Carrington and Christine Kuhlenthal – and show works from friends including Edward Bawden, Peter Coker, Charles Ginner, Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman, Cedric Morris, Eric Ravilious and Carel Weight.
There is lots more information about the exhibition on the Towner website here.
