Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) was a leading member of the St Ives group of artists and made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of post-war British art. Through Margaret Mellis and her husband, Adrian Stokes she was introduced to Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo. Barns-Graham’s concerns with precise drawing and ordering of shapes and colour were confirmed by these experiences. Nicholson liked her drawing and while she learned from him the relationship was not one-sided.

Well established at auction, earlier this year a comparable piece from the same date achieved £3,200.
