Footnotes

  • Painted soon after Pinker's permanent return to Cape Town from Europe in 1964, this intimate image of two lovers employs a Cezannesque palette and handling of paint. Pinker painted many (particularly reclining) nudes throughout his career as a vehicle for exploring both the sensuousness of the human form and what he celebrated as "the sensuousness of paint and colour".
