Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the leading British Modernist artists who had significant influence on the direction of sculpture. 

This iconic print was made after his eponymous masterpiece, titled after a meeting with Mondrian. 

The original canvas, which measures nearly seven feet wide, has been in the permanent collection of the Tate (London) since 1955.

In his paintings Nicholson was interested in exploring how flat simple shapes of pure color could create the illusion of depth and greater forms. This work epitomizes these types of aesthetic explorations. 

Nicholson is credited with further expanding the possibilities of Modernism. He was able to extract and elaborate on key ideas from early Modernist contributing movements, whether Constructivism or Cubism.

Alongside Barbara Hepworth (Nicholson's ex-wife) and Henry Moore, the trio are the key figures of British Modernist sculpture.
