About artist/note:

By the mid-1930s Pegi Nicol’s kaleidoscope vision begins to emerge, a style unique to her and for which there is no Canadian equivalent. Distorting compositions for emotional ends, Nicol is nonetheless disciplined in her use of space.

Private Collection, Nelson, British Columbia (a gift from the artist and thence by descent)
