‘All artists are unique and can only unite as complementaries not as similarities’ Winifred Nicholson of her time with Ben Nicholson.
Independent art historian Jovan Nicholson brings new insight to the artistic partnership of Ben Nicholson and Winifred Nicholson, his grandparents, and to their friendship and collaboration with Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, and the potter William Staite Murray. An extraordinary grouping, during an extraordinary decade for British art, and the Nicholsons were at the forefront.

Constantly experimenting, breaking existing conventions – one as a colourist, and one more interested in the form. Nicholson’s talk illustrates their different renderings of often the same subject, and encompasses the wider dynamic exchange between this group of artists and friends.

Nicholson is curator of the exhibition Art and Life, Ben Nicholson, Winifred Nicholson, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, William Staite Murray 1920-1931. Kettle’s Yard Feb 15 to May 11, Dulwich Picture Gallery June 4 to September 21.
