After the First World War, British artists strove to create innovative art that had links to the art of Europe. Paul Nash captured the ‘spirit of place’ in Dorset, Wiltshire and Kent in a modern style, later incorporating Surrealism.

Edward Wadsworth had a great love of nautical instruments and the fruits of the sea and painted these in fascinating arrangements. Tristram Hillier was a good friend of Wadsworth and painted Somerset, France and Spain. All three were members of the Unit One group.
