The Artist, from whom acquired by Gimpel Fils, London, where acquired by the present owner, October 2001

'A painting is a kind of celebration. It says something about the complex nature of human experience which cannot be adequately expressed by simulating the proportions of the human figures with a two-dimensional diagrammatical analogy.' (Robyn Denny, quoted in Robyn Denny, Tate, London, 1973, p.57)
