MABEL PRYDE NICHOLSON (1871–1918) was a portraitist of great skill and tenderness, working mainly within the compass of family life.

The first wife of the eminent Edwardian painter William Nicholson, her story has only since been told as a footnote to his, or to those of her famous children, the abstract artist Ben and architect Kit.

In fact, Mabel was a free-spirited young girl, an adventurous and well-travelled woman; key to a glittering bohemian circle and, as this new book reveals, one of the most significantly overlooked talents of early 20th century British art.

The MODERN WOMEN ARTISTS series of collectablebooks reveal an alternative history of art, telling the stories of important female artists whose work might otherwise be over-looked, overshadowed or forgotten. Read together, these books begin to redress the untold history of modern art.
