This striking work by Ben Nicholson was a gift to Barbara Hepworth’s assistant, David Lewis, for the Christmas of 1981. In 1931, Nicholson's relationship with the sculptor Barbara Hepworth resulted in the breakdown of his marriage to his first wife Winifred. He and Hepworth married in 1938 and though they divorced in 1951, a powerful creative partnership was formed.
