Provenance: the artist’s family
Great advances were made by the artists of the last generation in
the treatment of form and of colour, it is doubtful whether the
twentieth century will not be marked by certain discoveries’ (James
Wood, introduction to R.A. Wilson: Exhibition of Paintings and Colour
Studies, exh. cat., Guild of Decorators Syndicate, London, May 1922).
Exploring colour harmony was central to Wilson’s work and a subject on which he wrote and lectured.
