Battle Memorial Hall

A passionate advocate of 20th century British painting and design, James Russell writes and lectures widely. He also curates exhibitions, including 'Century', which opens at the Jerwood Gallery 22 October 2016 and features over 100 works of 20th century British art from the Ingram and Jerwood Collections - including watercolours by John and Paul Nash, and Eric Ravilious who was the subject of a watercolour exhibition curated by James at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2015.
We are delighted to welcome James Russell back to the Battle Arts Festival after his successful Eric Ravilious Masterclass last year, to hear this time his illustrated and down to earth presentation about the brothers Paul Nash (1989-1946) and John Nash (1893-1977). This will be an informative precursor for anyone hoping to visit the Tate Britain exhibition of Paul Nash’s work commencing 26 October 2016 (ends 5 March 2017).
James’ books include the popular Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape & Dream, as well as titles devoted to Edward Seago, Peggy Angus and Eric Ravilious. As a lecturer he has enjoyed speaking at a whole range of venues, including the V & A, the National Maritime Museum, as well as more locally at the Towner and Rye Arts Festival.
His presentation will last between 45-60 minutes and will include a question and answer session.
James’ book about Paul Nash and his work will be on sale both before and after the talk and he will be available for book signings. Limited edition prints, cards and vintage finds, all relating to the Nash brothers will also be available.
