Unlike many of Paul Nash’s watercolours this work has a free flowing style. You can see the faint suggestions of pencil under the watercolour and there is hardly any detail, suggesting it has been painted very quickly. This watercolour shows the Avon Gorge from the Clifton Spa Hotel, where the Nash family stayed in March 1939. It has been suggested that it was actually painted around 1946 from an earlier outline, when Nash was suffering from ill health.
