Paul & John Nash, Brothers in Art
James Russell’s Masterclass – Paul and John Nash: Brothers in Art
A passionate advocate of 20th century British painting and design, James Russell writes and lectures widely. He also curates exhibitions, including ‘Century’, which opens at the Jerwood Gallery 22 October 2016 and features over 100 works of 20th century British art from the Ingram and Jerwood Collections – including watercolours by John and Paul Nash, and Eric Ravilious who was the subject of a watercolour exhibition curated by James at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2015.
We are delighted to welcome James Russell back to the Battle Festival after his successful
Eric Ravilious Masterclass last year, to hear this time his illustrated and down to earth
presentation about the brothers Paul Nash (1989-1946) and John Nash (1893-1977). This
will be an informative precursor for anyone hoping to visit the Tate Britain exhibition of
Paul Nash’s work commencing 26 October 2016 (ends 5 March 2017).
James’ books include the popular “Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape & Dream”, as well as
titles devoted to Edward Seago, Peggy Angus and Eric Ravilious. As a lecturer he has enjoyed speaking at a whole range of venues, including the V & A, the National Maritime Museum, as well as more locally at the Towner and Rye Arts Festival.
