In 1931, Nicholson began a relationship with the sculptor Barbara Hepworth, making several portraits of her during the years that followed. This linocut from 1933 was made the year the couple travelled to Paris and met artists such as Picasso and Georges Braque. The influence of cubism can clearly be seen in the portrait’s multiple perspectives, simplified linear shapes and emphasis on the two-dimensional surface of the paper.
