Paul Nash (1889-1946) was an English war artist. At the outbreak of World War I, Nash enlisted in the Artists' Rifles and was sent to the Western Front in February 1917 as a second lieutenant in the Hampshire Regiment. A few days before the Ypres offensive he fell into a trench. He broke a rib and was invalided home. While recuperating in London, Nash worked from his front-line sketches to produce a series of drawings of the war. Nash used his opportunity as a war artist to bring home the full horrors of the conflict.   more from wikipedia »
