9780714828138: Ben Nicholson

Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he first came to prominence with his famous 'white reliefs', but he also maintained a lifelong attachment to landscape and still-life forms and - in an astounding career of over 60 years - produced a remarkable range of carved reliefs, paintings, drawings and prints. Norbert Lynton's subtle and sensitive study - the first full-length, comprehensive monograph on the artist's life and work - was originally published in 1993 in a large edition with many supplementary illustrations. It has remained a landmark edition since then, as it takes the reader on a journey through Nicholson's evolution as a painter and maturation as an artist across a series of fascinating phases. Ben Nicholson came from a dynasty of artists, and left behind him a legacy of artistic breakthroughs, touching upon an almost scientific approach to painting. This volume signifies the definitive work on the painter and printer, introducing this extraordinary artist and character.

About the Author :

Norbert Lynton is a distinguished art historian, lecturer, teacher and critic. From 1975 to 1989 he was Professor of History of Art at the University of Sussex.

From Booklist :

In spite of being one of Britain's leading twentieth-century artists, Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) and his work have not been accorded the sort of comprehensive scrutiny they deserve, until now. And this grand, color-rich (250 colorplates) retrospective was well worth the wait. Art historian Lynton, an acquaintance and devoted admirer of Nicholson, is indefatigable, tracing the roundabout evolution of Nicholson's style and inspirations decade by decade, painting by painting. The son of artists, art was in Nicholson's blood, and he followed its call over the static of his rivalry with his father. The company of women was essential to Nicholson; the first two of his three wives were artists, and every aspect of his daily existence related to his work. Innately talented and consumed by the sensuality of painting, Nicholson was a great experimenter, prolific, poetic, and dynamic right up to the end of his art-filled life. Lynton's commentary keeps pace with each phase of Nicholson's creativity as he played with the elements of landscape and still lifes, explored the eloquence of limitations in his famous white reliefs, and reveled in the glory of color and surface texture and transparency. In closing Lynton writes, Nicholson's art is "about being alive and conscious of living, of breathing, moving, sensing." It is also about beauty. Donna Seaman
