Ben Nicholson (1894–1982), a pioneer of abstract art in Britain, played a significant role in the European avant-garde, forming close links with Picasso, Braque, Arp, Mondrian, and others. At the same time he had a strong sense of tradition, maintaining a lifelong attachment to landscape and still-life forms. Nicholson’s career spanned more than 60 years and embraced carved reliefs, paintings, drawings, and prints. Virginia Button’s engaging, fully illustrated survey provides a detailed examination of his life and work.
