Post Lot Text
In his article 'The Early Prints of Ben Nicholson' Jeremy Lewison suggests that Nicholson's early experiments in relief printing in the 1920's and 30's may have been an integral step towards the painted reliefs which the artist made in the mid-1930's. In relief printing the negative areas of the image are carved out of a block of wood (or a piece of linoleum) so that when inked the raised portions print and the depressed portions do not. 5 Circles is contemporary to Nicholson's earliest carved and painted reliefs and is the only woodcut which he ever made. (Jeremy Lewison, Prints Quarterly, 'The Early Prints of Ben Nicholson', June 1985)
