Tracing for Wallpaper in Still Life - Autumn Fashion 1978

WAG 9778


This wallpaper design is a preparatory drawing for Patrick Caulfields painting 'Still life: Autumn fashion' in the Walker Art Gallery collection (WAG 9590). '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.
