Notes

In a review of Die Kunskamer exhibition in the Cape Argus, 19 March 1974, Eldred Green wrote of this work: "[The] juxtaposition of colours to produce gold is used again in No. 11, Still-Life with Kettle, the gold of the kettle against intense orange and intense red, with a more distant background of purples, violets, blacks and greens, an intense and valid statement about these colours."
