Nicolson was influenced by his father (also a painter), who collected mugs, glass objects and ceramics. The artist copied many of these in his compositions. On his visits to France in the 1920s he saw the works of Picasso, Matisse and Braque and their influence can be appreciated in Nicholson's output.

Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
