“She has probably no equal among modern British painters as a colourist of the most exquisite refinement.”

— P. C. Konody, The Observer,1927

The third of our ongoing Artist in Focus displays, this exhibition takes a close look at one of the most important artists in the collection. Winifred Nicholson, alongside her husband Ben Nicholson, was a close friend of Jim Ede, and an important influence, particularly when Jim was developing his vision for Kettle’s Yard. Winifred Nicholson’s paintings are above all studies of light and colour. Visitors to Kettle’s Yard house have long enjoyed Nicholson’s paintings and this display gives an opportunity to rediscover them. The display will include a number of works not normally shown and archival material. Key themes, such as her theories on colour and her involvement with the European avant-garde will be explored.
