Otto Dix meets Paul Nash -bird-heads and rolling hills… Edward Burra – review | Art and design | The Observer

<a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2011/oct/23/ed

…/"The extraordinary paintings of Edward Burra, who died in 1976, used to be something of a minority interest. Unconventional and uncategorisable, no one seemed to know what to do with him. But I sense a shift.

…"unforgettable paintings: giant postcards from a man who could not ignore what was happening to England, even if it is sometimes hard to tell if her changing landscape was more a source of regret or delight. Oh, you must see this show. It is fascinating and beautiful – and we will not, perhaps, see its like again: the majority of these works are in private collections. Feast your eyes while you can."
