P01026 Promenade II 1920

Not inscribed.
Woodblock, 4½ x 5½ (11.5 x 14).
Presented by the Paul Nash Trust 1971.

The following note on this woodblock and the print T01457 made from it has been kindly supplied by Alexander Postan (letter of 14 June 1972):

‘“Promenade II” was one of a series of wood-engravings that Paul Nash made while he was living at Dymchurch in Kent. The subject of the woodcut is of course the bay and seawall at Dymchurch, a subject that Paul Nash painted, drew, and photographed a great deal at that time. I have seen four different woodcuts of this subject; three made in 1920, and one in 1922.

‘The first is “Seawall”, 1920, reproduced in The Keepsake, 1920. Only a few proofs remain from a proposed edition of 50 and, according to John Gould Fletcher, the block has been destroyed. (John Gould Fletcher, cat. no. 8)… (read more)
