Art and Life


A seasonally warm evening for the private view of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s latest exhibition: Art and Life 1920-1931, celebrating the work of Ben and Winifred Nicholson, together with contemporaries, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis and potter, William Staite Murray. At the forefront of the Modern British Movement, Ben and Winifred Nicholson painted some of their most memorable works during this period. This exhibition, curated by their grandson, Jovan Nicholson, provides a rare opportunity to see both artists’ views of the same landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and portraits, together with significant works by their friends and contemporaries. To suit the balmy evening, I wore a silky favourite by Betty Jackson, worn last summer in 'Betty Jackson (again)', together with my gold Mare sandals. Beads and cuff are both vintage, from the '30s. The straw hat and basket-woven bucket bag suit the season.
