          Ben Nicholson's semi abstract view of boats in the Cornish harbour of St Ives, paying homage to V.E. Day with his use of the union flag. The table shown in front of the window makes this both a still life and landscape painting.

          Artist details

          Ben Nicholson was the son of artists and spent time in France, Italy and the USA before marrying Barbara Hepworth, his second wife, in 1938. From 1939 to 1958 he lived and worked in Cornwall. Nicholson's earliest paintings were still lifes. He later began painting figurative and abstract works and produced his first geometric and abstract reliefs in 1933. Nicholson's work came to be seen, with Henry Moore's, as the quintessence of British modernism.
