Paul Nash by Herbert Read: Penguin Modern Painters
Paul Nash by Herbert Read: Penguin Modern Painters (Penguin Books / 1944)
In keeping with Penguin's brief to bring great literature to the masses, the Penguin Modern Painters series was conceived as a way of bringing art to the people at a time when, because of the war, much art had been removed from public, city-based galleries and packed off for safekeeping within rural collections.
Softcover in very good condition with clean, unmarked pages and no creasing to front or back cover. Elegantly sun-bleached with some browning along spine and outside edges. Original owner's signature in ink together with date of 1944 on inside front cover.
