For one day, the installation Eustace Nash: Pen to Paper will be on display in the Morning Room. This is an opportunity to access the exhibition for visitors who are unable to manage stairs, as it was previously displayed on the upper floor.
An artist, illustrator and cartoonist born in Boscombe, Nash studied at the Drummond Road School of Art. He became a prolific commercial artist and lithographer, working in partnership with his brother, Leslie, at their studio in Albert Road, Bournemouth. From 1913, he contributed a weekly cartoon to the now defunct Bournemouth Graphic newspaper, demonstrating a gentle and pertinent humour towards local personalities, events and news.
The exhibition includes a selection of Nash’s works, including lithographs, sketches, cartoons, and paintings, all with local references. Nash’s daughter, Myrna Chave, has very kindly loaned paintings and personal effects of her father for the exhibition, as well as providing fascinating insights into his career and life.
The installation will be on display from 10.00am to 4.00pm. No booking is required, but normal admission charges apply.
