Studies for Still Life - Autumn Fashion 1978

WAG 9776


These sketches are preparatory drawings for Patrick Caulfield's painting, 'Still life: Autumn fashion', in the Walker Art Gallery's collection. 'Still life: Autumn fashion' depicts an interior, possibly a kitchen, with light coming from an open window. A basket of leeks sits on the table, painted with thick black outlines. By contrast, oysters are shown both in outline and in highly realistic detail.
