About this Item

British/South African 1915-1969
Venusian Apartments

signed, dated 1961 and inscribed with the title on the reverse

Indian ink and watercolour on paper
sheet size: 50,5 by 38cm


The scale and substance of Jack Heath’s major paintings are in sharp contrast to his humorous, madcap, and hugely inventive works on paper. In this light, Venusian Apartments has at its centre a fantastical geometric construction, linked together by lozenges, squares and strips of translucent pinks, blues and purples, and surrounded by blasts of yellow and green from behind an intricate, combed motif.
