Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Purchased from the artist by Mrs Chesterfield in Lagos, 1964.
    By descent to the current owner.


    Mrs Chesterfield befriended the British architect, Robin Atkinson, when she moved to Lagos with her family in the mid-1950s. Atkinson had long been an admirer of Yusuf Grillo's work and commissioned him to design stained glass windows for the dome of the Presbytyrian church in Yaba, Lagos. Atkinson took Mrs Chesterfield to one of Grillo's exhibitions, where she met the artist and purchased Evangelists: Cymbal, Triangle and Tambourine.
