Footnotes

  • This lot is accompanied by two letters from the artist relating to the sketches, in one, dated 4 April 1976, Squirrell writes 'The value of my watercolours seems to have appreciated in recent years - in the eyes of buyers - & new works go very quickly, therefore, of colour work my studio is empty, and my wall equally bereft. So I am stumped when new enquiries come along!
    However, I have pencil sketches ranging over many years, & would like to augment your collection of one! I very seldom part with the original sketches that are out-of-door preliminaries for watercolours, but in a few instances I can spare them.'
