Ben and Winifred Nicholson were both artists who married in 1920. Although they have different styles, they often worked side by side, and the painting usually complement each other, as they share similar themes.
Ben Nicholson was an abstract artist influenced by Cubism and Picasso. In his paintings he liked to focus on the form of an image. Winifred on the other hand was an impressionist painter, and was mainly interested in colour.
Their grandson, Jovan Nicholson has curated and Art and Life exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, showcasing work between 1920 - 1931. As well as the paintings of his grandparents, Jovan has included pieces created by the Nicholson's contemporary friends, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, and William Staite Murray. These were artists that Ben and Winifred exchanged ideas with.
The exhibit runs until the 21st September, and entry is £11 for adults, £10 seniors, £6 concessions, and free for children. There are also numerous events scheduled along side. These include workshops on still life, wood engravings, silk screen printing, composition and colour, and many more.
