British artist Paul Nash (1889-1946), had lifelong links with Oxford, and nearby Wittenham Clumps, working as a war artist in the city from 1939.

This interactive study day will look at Nash’s works inspired by the locality, as well as his larger themes of image as landscape, as surreal encounter and as wartime propaganda. The day will be led by three specialist academics: Dr Jan D. Cox, Peter Vass and Dr Ian Holgate.

The programme includes:

Idyllic and Unspeakable Landscapes (Dr Jan. D. Cox)
Devastated Landscapes – Nash and the Landscapes of War
(Pete Vass)
Surreal Landscapes – A Return to the Wittenham Clumps (Dr Ian Holgate)
