Ben Nicholson was the son of the painter William Nicholson. After marrying Winifred Roberts, during the 1920s he travelled widely and lived with her between Cumberland, London, Paris and Switzerland. Following a period experimenting with a post-Cézanne manner, Nicholson developed a consciously 'primitive' landscape style in 1927, further encouraged by his encounter with the art of Alfred Wallis. Between 1931 and 1939 he lived in London in close proximity to many artists and critics such as Moore, Piper, Martin, Ede and Herbert Read. He met Arp, Brancusi, and later Mondrian, Gabo and Jean Hélion. The influence of these artists led him to develop a highly abstract style of the late 1930s, for which he is most famous. In 1931 he met Barbara Hepworth, who would become his second wife. He returned to St. Ives during the war with Hepworth, Gabo and Stokes and established an international reputation in the 1950s and 60s.

“Flowers give me more pleasure than anything and still life is the thing I like painting the best. I feel so much for still life, although perhaps it’s the thing that appeals least to the public.”
Christopher Wood, letter to his mother, 20 October 1923

Wood was born in Liverpool. Through extended visits to Paris between 1921 and 1924 he came into contact with the European avant-garde, meeting Picasso and Jean Cocteau in 1923. In Britain he became close friends with Ben and Winifred Nicholson, painting with them in Cumberland in 1928.

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska Stag Print

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska Stag Print

Description

Reproduction print of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska’s ‘Stag’, 1913

Paper size: 360 x 240mm
Image size: 330 x 204mm

Henri Gaudier was born in St. Jean de Braye, near Orleans, in France. He first came to Britain in 1908. This drawing was almost certainly made during a trip to Arundel, West Sussex, in September 1913. Gaudier had met Ezra Pound in London two months earlier. The efficiency and speed with which the stag is outlined suggest that at this time Gaudier was already responding to Pound’s interest in Oriental calligraphy. The use of essential and quickly drawn lines and Chinese inks remained cornerstones of Gaudier’s art for the remainder of his career.
