Originally shown in September 2014 (which may explain a possible sense of deja vue) – the always excellent art presenter/explainer Andrew Graham-Dixon takes us through the life and work of Paul Nash.

The programme lasts for an hour and is available to see on BBC i-player for 23 days.  We get a chance to not only see the works of a major British 20th century artist, and see them in context – but also to examine the effects of war stress and brutality on the vision of an artist.

“He painted landscapes of the mind – the mind of an uneasy survivor” (Graham-Dixon).
