Oxford – A city that has inspired so many – has wrought its magic again. This second exhibition to follow on from
'the seven sights of oxford' in June brings to the fore some of the less well known aspects of the city.
To celebrate the launch of his new book, 'Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape and Dream', author James Russell is coming to Blackwells to give an entertaining illustrated talk on the life and work of Paul Nash (1899-1946). The artist had a particular association with Oxford, where he lived during World War II, and a number of his most famous paintings have as their subject the landscape near the city.
