BEN NICHOLSON. Jeremy Lewison. Tate Gallery, London, 1993. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 278 pp. with 263 ills. (136 col.) and 136 reference ills. 30 x 24 cm. ISBN 1854371304 In English.
A significant reassessment of Nicholson's life and oeuvre that incorporates information from the Tate's newly opened archive of his papers, this catalogue features color reproductions and individual analyses of 135 paintings, reliefs, drawings and other works produced by the celebrated British artist (1894-1982) from 1919 to 1979, including a stylistically diverse selection of landscapes and still lifes as well as many of the constructivist abstractions for which he is best known. Amplified by a detailed biographical chronology, ten essays discuss such topics as Nicholson's experimentation with "primitivist" landscape painting in the late 1920s and early 30s, the relationship of his abstract reliefs to modernist architecture, and the pivotal role played by critic Herbert Read in establishing the artist's international reputation during the early postwar period.
