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 also maintained a lifelong attachment to landscape and still-life forms and, in a 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. In this second, paperback edition it is reissued in a shorter format. With the text unchanged and with over 190 illustrations, the new edition makes this standard work available at an incredibly competitive price to a new and much wider audience.

Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) is recognised as one of the great masters of 20th-century art. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he first came to international prominence with his famous "white reliefs", and he continued to produce remarkable abstract reliefs and paintings throughout his career. At the same time, this complex and independent-minded artist always refused to be pinned down by labels, and he maintained a lifelong attachment to the visible world. Many of his finest works are paintings, drawings and prints of landscape and still-life forms. This study of Nicholson's life and work was first published in 1994, the centenary of his birth. It is reissued here in a shorter paperback format, without the supplementary illustrations, but otherwise retaining the substance and essential character of the original publication.
