Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Philippa Bambach for her kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

"Still life was to form an occasional but continuing motif throughout Eurich’s work; he eschewed elaborate set pieces in favour of directness and simplicity, allowing any elaboration of decoration to flow directly from the subject - exemplified here by the exuberant Chinese-inspired decoration of the drainer, an otherwise functional piece of domestic tableware.” (Peyton Skipwith, in Edward Chaney and Christine Clearkin, Richard Eurich (1903-1992): Visionary Artist, London, 2003, p.52)
