    London, The Redfern Gallery, Keith Vaughan, 29 August-23 September, cat.no.18

    In 1948 Vaughan visited Ill de Ré, his first trip abroad after the war. The following year he returned to Northern France and cycled round the Brittany coast, making drawings of the 'soft pearly coloured' landscape, fishermen and bathers. This small but concentrated painting is typical of both the subject-matter that preoccupied Vaughan at that time and also of his sensitive use of mixed media technique.

    We are grateful to Gerard Hastings for compiling this catalogue entry. His book, Keith Vaughan: The Photographs, has recently been published by Pagham Press.
