John Nash

John Northcote Nash CBE, RA (1893-1977) was a British painter of landscapes and still-lives, and a wood engraver and illustrator, who from the 1920's frequented the Stour Valley until moving to live there in 1943 famous for his Over the Top portraying the action in which the 1st Battalion Artists' Rifles lost sixty-eight of eighty men killed or wounded during the first few minutes: Nash was one of the twelve spared by the shell-fire. But he is equally well known for his gentle Stour Valley landscapes - like the Barn Wormingford in the Royal Academy , Disused Canal at Wormingford in the Tate & his Late Summer at Stoke by Nayland now in the Bristol Museum.
