The Square


oil, watercolour, ink and paper collage on canvas

unframed: 30 by 80.5cm.; 11¾ by 31½in.

framed: 38 by 89cm.; 15 by 35in.

Executed circa the early 1950s.


We are grateful to Mel Gooding and Rhiannon Gooding for their kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

The canvas is original and unstretched. It has been secured to a mount using adhesive tape about the edges. Generally in good overall condition.


The canvas undulates. Some of the collage paper elements are lifting, with some of the edges becoming creased and rounded. Also some creasing to the collage elements. There are some, what appear to be, inherent tears and losses to the collage. There are spots of staining and surface matter, as well as discolouration to the adhesive. There is some minor time staining to the paper elements and discolouration to the pigments. A few minor scuffs and scratches to the paint surface.


Ultraviolet light reveals no apparent signs of retouching. Held under glass in a simple painted and gilt wood frame with a grey mount and cream inset.
