Description

Literature: Llewellyn, Sacha, and Paul Liss. Portrait of an Artist. Liss Llewellyn, 2021, p.38.

A loose, sombre still-life, showing the artist’s paint box and brushes within his studio.

Writing in Sergeant’s obituary, Peyton Skipwith noted that the artist ‘regarded colour as an intrusive and unnecessary distraction, though he did allow himself the occasional indulgence when the subject, such as a stylish pair of 1940s red shoes, or the eyelet on a luggage-tag, dictated’.
