Ben Nicholson's 1936 (White Relief)

Ben Nicholson
1936 (White Relief)

‘1936 (White Relief)’ is a precise piece of carving for which Nicholson used a ruler and compass. It was reproduced in the 1937 avant-garde publication Circle, probably the most important work in English to champion abstraction. Circle, aimed to unite an international modernist movement of artists, designers and architects with an ambitious agenda to revitalise modern civilisation. The publication opened with a sequence of Mondrian’s paintings paired with a group of Nicholson’s white reliefs. gerryco23.wordpress.com/2012/02/27/mondriannichol…
