This event has passed.

In the first event of our Ben Nicholson season, Jovan Nicholson will look at the artistic partnership of Ben and Winifred Nicholson, and their friendship and collaboration with Christopher Wood and Alfred Wallis in the 1920s. How did these relationships inspire and influence Ben Nicholson’s painting, in particular his still life works?

Jovan Nicholson is an independent art historian and curator with a particular interest in modern British art. He curated and wrote the accompanying catalogues for Art and life: Ben Nicholson, Winifred Nicholson, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, William Staite Murray, 1920-1931 (Dulwich Picture Gallery; Winifred Nicholson in Cumberland (Abbot Hall Art Gallery); Winifred Nicholson: Liberation of Colour (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art). He is an acknowledged expert on Winifred Nicholson’s work, a grandson of Ben and Winifred Nicholson, and a nephew of Kate Nicholson.
