Winifred Nicholson was a painter whose life and art crossed many
boundaries - artistic and geographical. She travelled and painted in France, Greece and Morocco before settling in Cumbria where she painted her most characteristic and lyrical still lives and landscapes.
The exhibition includes paintings which illustrate the whole of Nicholsons
career, from early landscapes to later explorations of prismatic colour.
Her subjects are landscapes, flowers, still lifes and figures, but above all
they are paintings of colour and light. Although best known for her
delightful flower paintings produced in Cornwall and the South of France,
Nicholson continued to develop as an artist.
Her later work demonstrates an
interest in the independence of colour from form, and the way in which
particular colours can manipulate movement within a painting.
Winifred Nicholson was born in Oxford in 1893 and studied at the Byam School
of Art. In 1920 she married the painter Ben Nicholson and worked with him
in Switzerland and Cumberland, also often visiting London and Paris.
