ANDREW MURRAY (1917-)
PICCADILLY CIRCUS
signed l.r.: ANDREW MURRAY
oil on canvas
66.5 x 51.5cm / 26.0 x 20.3in

Andrew Murray took up oil painting late in life, while living in Cape Town, having been a local newspaper editor. In 1969, Murray and his wife moved to London and thereafter he painted scenes of local life in London, and on his travels to France and to Italy. He had a series of exhibitions at the Portal Gallery. One of the paintings from his "Images of Reconciliation" exhibition was adopted as Unicef Christmas card. The success of this led Murray to continue to design highly distinctive post cards for the rest of his life and in 1980 "Andrew Murray's London", a collection of these cards, was published.

Dancers have been a regular subject of Remfry's work, most notably in his DANCERS series, which were collected in the International retrospective exhibitions of the same name in 2002. Remfry says of his work, "I'm obsessed with how people behave together - how we embrace as we dance, how we 'distract ourselves', as Francis Bacon put it. I love observing this and recording it in a painting. In the process, I hope to discover something of what we are." (1)

ATTRIBUTED TO MARGARET MORRIS (1891-1980)
THE BATHER
oil on canvas
62.0 x 51.5cm / 24.4 x 20.2in


Morris was one of Britain's most renowned dancers of the 20th century. She pioneered her own system of movement notation, based in part on Isadora Duncan's work. Together with her husband John Duncan Fergusson, the great Scottish Colourist, she founded her eponymous club, whose members included Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis and Augustus John among others. Although best known for her choreography, her paintings have been the subject of exhibitions in Scotland.

Her work shows the influence of her husband, with its bold brushstrokes and vibrant colour evoking the art of the Fauvists and the later Scottish Colourists. The artist's choice of subject suggests an affinity with the works of Edgar Degas, whose works her husband was familiar with from his time in Paris.
