Sir William Newzam Prior Nicholson (1872 – 1949) was an English painter, also known for his work as an illustrator and author of children's books.
A student at Hubert von Herkomer's art school, Nicholson is well known for his partnership with his brother-in-law James Pryde. Known as the Beggarstaff Brothers they produced striking graphical work and woodcuts, their poster work being particularly significant historically.
Ahead of his time in his distinctive graphic style, Nicholson's prints are instantly recognisable and can appear as contemporary today as when they first appeared on the market.
