Select an image on the right to view print information and price.

Engraver, etcher, and illustrator — his specialty was wood engraving and his subject matter consists of landscapes, rivers, hunters, dogs, grazing cows, rolling meadows, and sturdy oak trees. Nason, commonly referred to as "the poet engraver of New England, " was widely respected for his wood-block prints that capture the beauty and grace of the New England countryside.

Nason studied at Tufts College but is generally considered a self-taught artist. His technical ability to capture mood and depth in his prints clearly demonstrates his mastery of the relief print technique. Nason was a member of the National Academy of Design in New York City; the National Institute of Arts and Letters in New York City; the Society of American Etchers; the Salmagundi Club in New York City; the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts; the Chicago Society of Etcher; the Lyme Art Association in Lyme, CT; the Philadelphia Society of Etchers; and Associate member of the National Academy of Design in 1936.

Nason's exhibits and awards include a prize for best print at the Philadelphia Print Club in 1929 and 1930; a prize at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1930; a prize at the Library of Congress in 1943 and 1945; a prize at the Society of American Etchers in 1935, 1938, and 1945; the City of Warsaw in Poland; a prize at the Woodcut Society of Kansas City in 1937; the Albany Printmakers Club in 1936; the Northwest Printmakers in 1933 and a prize in 1932.
