Nina Hammett (1890 – 1956) was a British painter, designer, and illustrator who was immersed in the avant garde-circles in London and Paris of the early 20th century. In Paris she became friends with Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Serge Diaghilev and Jean Cocteau, while in London she became close with Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and the Omega Workshop around Roger Fry. The leading modern painter of the time, Walter Sickert, admired and encouraged her work. She exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in Paris and the Royal Academy in London. Her striking formal still life paintings and perceptive portraits of poets, dancers and friends defined her artistic achievements, examples of which can be seen in Tate Britain. Her flamboyant lifestyle saw her nicknamed Queen of Bohemia while living in Fitzrovia at the heart of the artistic community there.

Works on paper do not appear on the open market often, but examples recently have been making over £1,000.
