‘Bott’s style continued to develop throughout his career and in the 1960’s and the 1970’s, he embarked on two major pictorial series, namely Espaces Concertés and Cathédrales. These represented a change to a more linear approach and are characterised by a more vibrant colours in keeping with the mood of the times.’ Quote from Christie’s catalogue ‘Works From The Studio of Francis Bott (1904-1998), 2006.
