Ashby’s Pond is in the Hamlet of Meadle in Buckinghamshire where John Nash lived during the 1920s. Nash loved the countryside and he captures the essence of the English landscape in his paintings. Nash was encouraged to paint by his older brother Paul. He didn’t have any formal training as Paul felt it would destroy ‘that special thing’ that John had. On the reverse of this painting there is a landscape with buildings.
