Edward Rogers (1911-1995):
Beach Ballet, Study of Shapes, 1948
Framed (ref: 137)
Signed and dated October 1948, inscribed with title to reverse Oil on panel, 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 in. (26.7 x 21.6 cm.)
1948, the year of this picture, marks Roger's move from realism to highly coloured, geometric abstract pictures and cut-metal sculptures. This transition was partly inspired by the extensive travels that he undertook in Europe, India and Egypt whilst serving in the Royal Air Force during World War II.
