Figurative works on paper from the 1960s
This file contains sketches and paintings of a range of different subjects including a number of female nudes (including two from Williams' 'Dark Nude' series) and two paintings of birds, presumably from his rare tropical birds series. Many of the works are undated but have been identified by the artist's daughter as having been produced by Williams in the 1960s.
