Nicholson + Mondrian
Yesterday we went to a new exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery exploring the relationship and mutual influence of Piet Mondrian and Ben Nicholson. Nicholson had visited Mondrian at his studio in Paris - a friendship that grew much closer when Mondrian moved to London from 1938-40.
For me, these two abstract paintings by Nicholson really stood out. They are both really beautiful studies in colour, proportion and composition.
