the artist's children W Nicholson.1931-2

The Artist’s Children, Kate and Jake, at the Isle of Wight 1932 is one of Winifred Nicholson’s most beloved paintings and one of the most beloved paintings in the Bristol Gallery. ‘This work was painted at a time of personal sadness, a few months after her husband, the artist Ben Nicholson, had decided to live with Barbara Hepworth. Winifred took their three children to the Isle of Wight and painted their portraits and views from the house. She often painted a work in one sitting, direct from nature’ (PCF).
