Benjamin Nicholson

About Artist: Benjamin Lauder Nicholson (1894-1982) was born in Denham, Buckinghamshire, to artists Sir William Nicholson and Mabel Pryde. The family moved to London where Nicholson attended preparatory school and then a boarding school. He began his artistic education at the Slade School of Fine Art. After a meeting with playwright J.M. Barrie, It was decided that Barrie would use one of Nicholson's drawings on a poster for one his productions. He was deemed not eligible for military service during the First World War due to asthma and subsequently travelled around America shortly after the death of his mother from influence and his brother's death in action. Early in Nicholson's career he would paint figurative and abstract works, taking inspiration from Post Impressionism and Cubism. He was first featured in exhibit in 1919 with his first solo show in 1924. In 1937, along with Naum Gabo and architect Leslie Martin, Nicholson edited Circle: International Survey of Constructive Art; The publication identified as part of a group of like-minded artists that shared his interest in applying constructivist principles to art, advocating the use of mathematical measurements, clean lines and the absence of unnecessary ornamentation.
