Description

Original Vintage Photographic Print on Agfa Brovira paper. September 1937. Inscribed with title verso. Faintly inscribed “No Negative” in Nash’s hand verso, this is believed to be a unique print.

Paul Nash took photographs for the last sixteen years of his life; that is to say from 1930 when he was given a No.1A pocket Kodak series 2 camera. This was adequate to his purpose and he never became involved enough in the technique of photography to buy himself a more elaborate one or bother with wide-angle or other lenses or even to use a tripod.  A very similar negative of this scene is held in the Tate Gallery archives under ref number: TGA 7050PH/937 (all of his negatives are lodged in the Tate Gallery Archives Department) but this particular picture, having no negative, and with the inscription verso, appears to be unique.
