Catalogue Note

'Everyone must choose his own way, and mine will be the way of colour.'

 

George Leslie Hunter

quoted in, T. J. Honeyman, Introducing Leslie Hunter, London, 1937. p.97

'Hunter always maintained that he was not painting for today but for fifty years hence...Having lived twenty-five years with several of them I find that Hunter's prophecy is coming true.'
