Some very interesting paintings here from 100 years ago and the advent of Modernism.
In this final look at a selection of paintings which were completed in or around 1920, I include more landscapes in more modern styles from around the world.

Paul Nash’s view of the Cotswold Hills shows the rolling countryside near his family home in Buckinghamshire, England. Although it breaks from the military regularity and desolation of his war paintings, the shafts of sunlight are disturbingly reminiscent of those in his war painting of the Menin Road from just a couple of years before.
More popular among the landscape artists of the day were various degrees of Impressionism and post-Impressionism.
