The British artist Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) met and was inspired by both Mondrian and Picasso, and subsequently made the decision to become primarily an abstractionist. 

His work has a fascinating balance of charm and austerity. I love the decisive clarity of his art- a truly original and distinctive voice! 

The corruption of the American soul is consumerism.
-Ben Nicholson
