'The shape of the spaces between objects is as important as
the shape of the objects themselves, so that there is a teasing
interchange between the two. Always Nicholson's drawings
bear the marks of their physical making, nothing is fudged or
concealed, each line is to be appreciated for its qualities as a
line as well as for its function of delineating.'
