In conversation with Paul Nicholls, Sutherland described his attitude toward colour in his late works:

'If I have felt in recent years in some work that I prefer to work almost monochromatically this is because the problem presented demands such treatment. But from time to time in the last few years...you will find a number of works with saturated red or yellow grounds. Some themes seem to demand a heightened chromatic scale- some seem more real, some solemn without it.' (Interview published in Graham Sutherland (exh.cat.), Mazart s.a. Bissone, November- December 1976).
