Joseph Nash Gallery:
Early 19th C. lithographs

Joseph Nash was born in Great Marlow, England, and early demonstrated an interest in art, studying with A. Pugin. In 1830, he began to practice lithography, for which he became best known in later years. In the early part of his career, he concentrated on illustrative work and genre scenes, as well as picturesque architectural subjects. His success was largely due to the large sets of lithographs which he published that were of high standard and that combined architectural fidelity with historical romanticism. His most famous work was probably a set of illustrations for Sir D. Wilkie's "Oriental Sketches" in 1846. After suffering an attack of "brain fever" in 1854, his talents declined and he fell into frequent disputes with fellow artists before dying at Baywater. Today his lithographs, usually brushed generously with bodycolor and frequently misidentified as watercolors, are considered to be excellent early examples of the art and are eagerly collected. All the prints indicated below are attractively matted and framed and are ready to hang.
