William Nicholson

William Nicholson
William Nicholson was a British painter, engraver, lithographer and illustrator noted for his portraits of well known individuals, along with landscapes and still life.

I find his still life paintings particularly appealing. Their subjects, sometimes a bit unusual, are rendered with a painterly touch and an eye to soft contrasts of value and color.

  1. Did he sometimes sign his name:

    William Nicholson. date.

    I have an uncoloured lithograph thus signed, but am unsure whether it is genuine. The date is illegible: it might be 1928, or any year ending in eight.

    Any thoughts, anyone? I love his work.
