Published to accompany the exhibition 'Kate Nicholson' at Falmouth Art Gallery, 13 May 2019 - 06 July 2019.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book 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 of them inspired by her travels in Greece - to the late works made on the Isle of Eigg in the Hebrides. It examines her artistic relationship with her mother, with whom she painted side by side in Cumberland and Scotland, and on their many Greek travels. It also discusses her creative relationship with her father with whom she lived in St Ives in the mid-1950s for two years, as well as her friendship with many of the St Ives artists and her role in the Penwith Society. 0Published to accompany the exhibition 'Kate Nicholson' at Falmouth Art Gallery, this book is the first monograph on this highly talented artist who deserves to be better known. It illustrates many works from both public and private collections and draws on groundbreaking new research, together with the author's experience of travelling with her on painting trips.00Exhibition: Falmouth Art Gallery, Falmouth, UK (13.05.-06.07.2019).
