Ruined Country, Paul Nash (late 1917/18). Nash depicted the ruined countryside as a way of carrying a message to the people of Britain of the stark realities of war. It took others many years to be able to describe in words the horrifying scenes they were to witness, but Nash managed to convey the stark brutality of the Great War with the bleakness and carnage caused to nature.
