Ben Nicholson—in collaboration with Larkhall Fine Art
Created in partnership with Larkhall Fine Art, Tree, Column and Moon includes 18 etching and drypoint prints by British abstract artist Ben Nicholson (1894 - 1982). Nicholson’s gestures present a juxtaposition of curved and straight lines, producing abstract, geometric forms. Many take still lifes of goblets and bottles as their subject; elsewhere, column capitals, sundials, domes and cloisters meet the forms of trees and crescent moons, demonstrating Nicholson’s preoccupation with the landscapes and classical architecture of Italy, Greece and Turkey.
