Simple but interesting. There's something very feminine about pears... Ben Nicholson, Four Pears

Work of the week: Ben Nicholson, 1934 (relief design), on show in Horizons, Kettle's Yard at Jerwood Gallery, Hastings. 1934 (relief design) is quite roughly worked in thick card, it measures just 8x8cm. It shows Ben Nicholson beginning to explore the combination of physical layers with the abstract language of circles and grids. Copyright: Angela Verren Taunt
