China Dogs in a St. Ives Window
- Tom Nicholson Trust
Christopher Wood painted China Dogs in a St Ives Window during his stay in the Cornish fishing village of St Ives in 1926.
The painting represents a pivotal moment in the artist’s career, bringing together the influence of the Post- Impressionist art he had observed in Paris with his interest in the Celtic folk culture of Cornwall.
The artist; his former partner Frosca Munster; bequeathed to Winifred Nicholson in the 1960s; by descent.
