Description

A woman's silk kimono with a pattern invoking a landscape.

  • Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was a pioneer of English abstract painting and sculpture, whose landscape and still life works were inspired by Post Impressionism and Cubism. His work became among the most influential in British art.
  • As in earlier periods, Japanese artists continued to be influenced by the West in their evolving and innovative design.
  • The artist of this kimono has seemingly created a wearable version of Nicholson's painting 'Cornish Landscape' from 1949, seen here.
