T00399 DANCE, BLUE AND YELLOW 1960
 
Not inscribed.
Canvas, 30×39 3/4 (76×101).
Purchased from the Leicester Galleries (Knapping Fund) 1961.

The artist had been painting variations on this theme for some years (see T00161). The present canvas was intended for an exhibition, consisting of a sequence of dancing figures, held at Durlacher Bros., New York, in April 1961, but was purchased before it could be dispatched to America.
