T00130 WALKING FIGURE 1957
Inscr. ‘Kinley’ b.l.
Canvas, 57×35 (145×89).
Purchased from Gimpel Fils (Grant-in-Aid) 1957.
Exh: Gimpel Fils, March 1957 (5), as ‘Standing Figure No.2’.
The artist painted a number of figure subjects early in 1957. This example is one of a series of upright compositions, having been preceded by ‘Standing Figure No.1’ (Arts Council Collection; repr. Studio, CLVII, 1959, p.144) and ‘Standing Figure No.3’, also exhibited in March 1957 (4 and 6); it was followed by a larger ‘Walking Figure’, and the change in the title of T00130 was made by the artist. A number of small oil sketches connected with this group of works were in the same exhibition.
