The exhibition, which includes important early wood engravings and etchings, photographs, collage, correspondence and illustrated books, was amassed by the artist's intimate friend Clare Neilson. It has been recently gifted to Pallant House Gallery by Neilson's godson Jeremy Greenwood and Alan Swerdlow, through the Art Fund.

Both Paul Nash and his younger brother John had strong connections with Dorset. Paul lived in Swanage during the 1930's and died in Boscombe in 1946.

So, there is a day to look forward to. I am especially looking forward to viewing his photographs and collages which are, I feel, the underrated side of Paul Nash. Doesn't he look quite the natty dresser in this fine picture (below) at Staunton in Gloucestershire!
