Notes

She began breaking up the surfaces of her paintings into areas of contrasting colour, separated in stained-glass fashion by clearly defined lines. This method also took her some way towards abstractionism… The moderating influences of Braque and Matisse in particular had asserted themselves soon after she returned to Paris in 1947.
- Charles Eglington

Provenance

Professor Danie Joubert collection, since 1968.
