Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With David Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, February 1974, where purchased by
    Dr Nelson
    Private Collection, U.K.

    Cecil King was an Irish abstract-minimalist painter, largely self-taught.
    While he began painting in an expressionist style, his mature works have a distinctive minimalist formality and, as in the present example, often involve clean blocks of even colour cleaved at an acute angle.
    A major retrospective of his work was held in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in February 2008.
