The earliest work included in the sale, 1940 (gouache) was painted during a period of great upheaval for Nicholson, during which time he was adjusting to dramatically changed circumstances brought about the outbreak of war. In August 1939, as Britain stood on the brink of War, Adrian Stokes had invited Nicholson together with his then-wife Barbara Hepworth and their children to spend the summer with them in his Cornish home. The family later moved to the area, leaving London behind and settling in the seaside town of St Ives. www.sothebys.com/en/articles/four-decades-of-ben-…
