Nicholson returned to painting still lifes throughout his career. In particular, he was fascinated by table top scenes – a legacy of his interest in cubism, whose followers often used still life compositions to suggest distinctive, three dimensional form. Here, Nicholson uses warm landscape colours and a smooth fresco-like surface to evoke the Val d’Orcia, a place not far from Siena, Italy.
