Catalogue Note

The lengthy annotation, a quotation from Francis Bacon, reads,

'Well, I often wish that I had a camera and just took the thing as it went along, because certainly, very often in working one loses the best moments of a painting in trying to take it further.  And, if one had a record of what it was, one might be able to find it again.  So it would almost be nice to have a running camera going all the time . . . '
