Winifred Nicholson in Cumberland

£24.99

Product description

Winifred, together with her husband artist Ben Nicholson, was at the forefront of modern painting in Britain during the 1920s. After the Second World War, Winifred began painting landscape views from her parent’s house in what was to become her signature style. At the time she said: ‘My paintings talk in colour and any of the shapes are there to express colour but not outline. The flowers are sparks of light, built of and thrown out into the air as rainbows are thrown in an arc.’
She made many trips to the Lake District where she captured atmospheric landscape scenes of Ullswater, Borrowdale, Skiddaw, and the Duddon Valley. Winifred also delighted in the monumental stone circles of Cumbria.

Published to commemorate an exhibition of Winifred's work in Kendal.
