Iconic landscape images that promoted escape and adventure from the 1920s to the 1950s.


On show will be posters and original paintings by artists such as Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Vanessa Bell, some of whom feature in Mottisfont's collection.

The works reflect a diversity of artistic styles emerging in Britain after the First World War and explore the British countryside through images of inspiring landscapes and historic landmarks. The exhibition also includes some of the famous Shell guides, valentine cards and film.
