Description

Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he first came to prominence with his famous 'white reliefs', but he also maintained a lifelong attachment to landscape and still-life forms and - in an astounding career of over 60 years - produced a remarkable range of carved reliefs, paintings, drawings and prints.

Norbert Lynton's subtle and sensitive study - the first full-length, comprehensive monograph on the artist's life and work - was originally published in 1993 in a large edition with many supplementary illustrations. It has remained a landmark edition since then, as it takes the reader on a journey through Nicholson's evolution as a painter and maturation as an artist across a series of fascinating phases.

Ben Nicholson came from a dynasty of artists, and left behind him a legacy of artistic breakthroughs, touching upon an almost scientific approach to painting. This volume signifies the definitive work on the painter and printer, introducing this extraordinary artist and character.
