John and Paul Nash: Brothers in Art
Curated exhibition for the RWA, 2014, and shown alongside Shock and Awe: Art and Memory in the Aftermath of War.
Brothers in Art… reunited the work of John and Paul Nash, featuring over forty paintings, watercolours and drawings from public and private collections, providing a unique opportunity to view the two siblings’ work side-by-side, explored within the powerful context of conflict and memory. Interweaving the
brothers’ two very different narratives, the exhibition explored the notion of both individual and collective memory through the haunting beauty of the English landscape. The exhibition was developed from an original idea conceived by James Russell, writer and curator.
