Jovan Nicholson

The Art of Kate Nicholson

Jovan explores the career of the St Ives artist Kate Nicholson, daughter of Ben and Winifred Nicholson, from her early landscapes, the still lifes painted in Cumberland and St Ives, the abstracts – many inspired by her travels in Greece – to the late works made on the Isle of Eigg in the Hebrides. He looks at her artistic relationship with her mother, Winifred, with whom she painted in Cumberland, Scotland and Greece.

Jovan Nicholson is an art historian and curator with a particular interest in modern British art. A grandson of Ben and Winifred Nicholson and a nephew of Kate Nicholson, he is an acknowledged expert on Winifred Nicholson's work. He is the author of several art monographs including Art and Life: Ben Nicholson; Winifred Nicholson; Christopher Wood; Winifred Nicholson: Liberation of Colour and  Winifred Nicholson in Cumberland.
