Collage on Card. Signed verso.
Barns Graham moved to Cornwall in 1940 where she met, amongst others, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. She became a member of both the Newlyn and St Ives Societies of Artists. This rare picture relates to her ‘Movement: Day/Night’ theme of the early 1980s and suggests planets in the night sky (see L Green ‘A Studio Life’ 2001 p.205). It is signed and dated 1982 and inscribed on the back. Two similar works have sold at Sothebys and Christies for in excess of £9,000 (including commission) in the past three years.
