Sir William Nicholson: Landscapes and Still Lifes
Private View | Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert
Thursday 27 October 2011 - 18:30 until 20:00
Sir William Nicholson was a fashionable portrait painter and a fine and innovative printmaker.
However, painting still life and landscapes was what he loved most, and these subtle, beautifully coloured canvases, easy to enjoy but rarely slight or insubstantial, are the backbone of Nicholson's career.
This loan exhibition at Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert shows some of the most attractive and important of them, drawn from public and private collections. Our private evening view introduces them in a short talk by David Fraser Jenkins, until recently head of the Modern British Collection at Tate.
