Ben Nicholson

Ben Nicholson is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the development of British abstraction. Born in 1894 into a family of painters, Nicholson made a conscious decision to paint seriously with the death of his mother in 1918. During the 1930s, Nicholson established friendships with many European artists including Arp, Braque, Mondrian and Giacometti.

This exhibition will include paintings and drawings from all periods of his life, starting with the drawing 'Cafe Robinson, St Remy' from the early thirties, going through to a 'White Relief' from 1936 and then the hard edged geometrical paintings of the early forties.
