Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) is best known as a pioneer of abstract art in Britain. He carved and painted reliefs in an austere, geometric style which placed him as a leader of the Constructivist movement in London during the 1930s. Nicholson’s printmaking in the late 1920s and 1930s developed out of his interest in flat patterns, varied textures and incised surfaces, which he was then exploring in his paintings.
