Artist's Biography

Rachel Nicholson was born in 1934. 

At her first London exhibition in June 1980, Rachel's father Ben Nicholson, commented on 'Still Life on Navy Blue, 1979: 'I never realised she could paint so well.  I would have been happy to have painted that one myself'.  With the daunting heritage on her father's side of two generations of Nicholson artists, and as the daughter of Barbara Hepworth, a famous sculptor, Rachel soon freed herself from 'the anxiety of influence' and created a distinctive and unmistakable style of her own.
