Paul Nash ‘Landscape of the Moon’s Last Phase’, oil on canvas, 1944.
Wittenham Clumps is the name of two chalk hills in Berkshire, comprising Round Hill and Castle Hill, the second of which is the site of an Iron Age hillfort. A third hill, Brightwell Barrow, is generally not considered to be part of the Clumps, but Nash’s rendering of the hill is named ‘Wittenham Clumps’, so a connection plainly existed in his mind. They were a great influence on his art throughout his life, and he produced variations of the geological and archaeological features throughout his life. A website, ‘Paul Nash and the Wittenham Clumps‘ carries a good deal of information, and is highly recommended should you wish to read on.
The card is 140mm by 140mm, and printed on Invercote card stock using high quality inks.
