Tate, Ben Nicholson- St Ives, (Cornwall) Framed Print, 82 x 62cm
With this piece, Ben Nicholson experimented with the positioning of objects in space. The Union Jack is featured in the foreground as a gesture to celebrate V.E. Day and the end of the war.
Born in Denham, Buckinghamshire Ben Nicholson studied at the Slade School of Art from 1910 to 1911. Nicholson's earliest paintings were still lifes, influenced by those of his father. In the 1920s he began painting figurative and abstract works, inspired by Post Impressionism and Cubism. He produced his first geometric and abstract reliefs in 1933. In 1952 Nicholson won first prize at the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh. He was awarded the first Guggenheim International painting prize in 1956, and the international prize for painting at the Sao Paulo Bienal in 1957.
