The work of two top 20th-cen­tury artists is cel­e­brated in must-see ret­ro­spec­tives this month. Tate Bri­tain takes a look at the work of painter Paul Nash in its au­tumn block­buster. He’s best-known for his war scenes, which demon­strate his frus­tra­tion with con­flict through Cu­bist-in­flu­enced paint­ings, but also on dis­play will be work from peace­time ( The Rye Marshes, 1932; top) and stud­ies of flora and fauna (un­til 5 March; tate.org.uk). Over at cen­tral Lon­don’s Water­house & Dodd gallery, the New York graphic artist, print­maker and renowned op­ti­mist Paul Peter Piech is cel­e­brated with a rare sell­ing ex­hi­bi­tion of his wood­cut and linocut prints. Some pieces are em­bla­zoned with po­lit­i­cal quotes and his sig­na­ture dis­arm­ing il­lus­tra­tions, while oth­ers tap into a gen­tler side ( My Own Mind In My Own Church, right; 22 Novem­ber– 17 De­cem­ber; wa­ter­house­dodd.com).
