This lyrical image of a calm, sunlit clearing at the edge of a dark pine forest can be seen as a straightforward landscape painting. As the title indicates though, it is intended as a study of the forms and structures of the different types of tree and of the effects of light passing through their leaves and branches. John Nash was a talented painter and printmaker. He had no formal artistic training but was encouraged in his work by his older brother Paul Nash.
